Hi Team,

How to find the throughput of a completed job which is not shown in the java console.

Check bpbkar log on the client. You should have entries similar to

tar_base::backup_finish: TAR - backup:                          15114 files
tar_base::backup_finish: TAR - backup:          file data:  995460990 bytes  13 gigabytes
tar_base::backup_finish: TAR - backup:         image data: 1033197568 bytes  13 gigabytes
tar_base::backup_finish: TAR - backup:       elapsed time:        649 secs     23099898 bps

Divide data transferred by seconds and you'll get the speed

Or if that's not available, just take the same info (amount backed up & time) from the job details , bpimagelist output or the client backups report......

How to find the throughput in the above o/p

Just divide this number 106101468 on number of seconds it took to backup?

If you use bpimagelist -l then you could do a bit of strategic 'pruning' of the output:


bpimagelist -l -client client_name -hoursago 24|grep "^IMAGE"|awk '{print $15 " " $19}'
340 585178

so 585178/340 ~= 1721 Kb/s

DOCUMENTATION: What are the different fields in "bpimagelist -l" output?


*Exactly* the same info can be gleaned from the 'Client Backups' report in the Admin Console GUI (it does use bpimagelist - with slightly different options - afterall to produce it's output!), just make sure you've editted the GUI if necessary to provide you with the relevant columns.

e.g. same output from report as above:

Kilobytes    Elapsed Time
585178            00:05:40

For info:
