How to see content of Tape with Size? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    we have an LTO5 Tape Stand alone Device with  "tape colocation" enabled in DPM 2012.

    Now all PG have 2.2TB every night. Since last week all PG don't fit anymore to one tape.

    How can I see how much data ist written on tape with differentiation by PG?

  • Hi,

    The easiest way would be to created a "custom filter" under the JOBS tab and only select tape backup jobs for 1 night. Then group by protection group and see how much data was sent to the drive during that nights backup.  You should easily see what the size of each data source that was written to tape.   You can change the date to an earlier day when they all fit on one tape and see what data source(s) are now larger.
