Modify it has need  my 64 hours is for weekend backups.
If you want to run daily change to 24.


for x in $(/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpimagelist -U -hoursago 64 | grep -v "^[KB-]" | awk '{ print $5 }')


z=$(( $x + z ))


echo $z | /usr/bin/mail -s "Prod Weekend Backups"

I don't have to know how to spell....I work on Unix.

you could always use the "Client Backups Report" in the Admin Console GUI.

You can then 'export' the output. It goes to a txt file by default but you could change this to xls or whatever.

You can manipulate the columns, filter by name, date etc etc etc either before the export or after I suppose & it would be easy enough then to total up by date, by policy, by client or whatever you need.
