DPM 2012 - Changes size RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    I have a quick question regarding the Agent Journal with DPM2012.

    My understanding is (correct me if 'm wrong) that the DPM agent will record every disk writes in a journal so that, when a synchronisation is requested, only the changes are transferred to the DPM server. Correct?

    My question is: is there a Powershell command (or something else) that would allow to determine the amount of data that will be transferred to the server. Something that would query the journal. Or is there a way of looking in the journal to determine this?

    Thank you,
    Stephane

  • Hi,

    DPM has a file system filter driver (DPMFIlter) that keeps track of block level changes to the protected data sources. The DPMFilter creates a bitmap file that keeps track of blocks that have changed and need to be transferred.  We have no method to read that bitmap to display what you want.

  • Thanks Mike, I was afraid that was the case.
