Get size of snapshots (local + remote)

Hello,

 

I am performing the first snapshot + sync to AWS through Data Protection. While this is active I can see the total amount of data transferred, however this means I need to watch it to know how much data was sent. Is there a way I can query the size or statistics of a snapshot to know how much was sent, how long it took etc etc?

 

Many thanks,

 

Daniel

Hi

 

The 2020 page will have want your looking for. <CVM_IP>:2020, it might not be open due to the firewall so you can also use links from the command line of the CVM

Hi @IT_Guy

 

There may be other ways, but I know we maintain 90 days worth of replication statistics for the remote site.  You could use the remote site bandwidth charts to see the throughput and duration for your historical snapshots with a given remote site, in this case AWS. Specifically you can create a remote site based entity chart on the Prism analysis page and include the replication bandwidth or bytes sent/recieved.   Might not be exactly what you're looking for but maybe a start. 

 

Thanks,

Thanks dlink7, that's excellent. On that page I found the following entry:

 

30887Replicate20170324-17:00:11-GMT+1000185655remote=AWS snapshot=(3070087628368848808, 1489546495817655, 30884) reference_snapshot=(3070087628368848808, 1489546495817655, 19423) replicated_bytes=4100159387648 tx_bytes=2128758099850 uncompressed_tx_bytes=2955147644603No kNoError

 

Which is showing the exact statistics I was after.

 

Thanks for the suggestion also, mmcghee. I had thought of that but the upload bandwidth varies from 4 - 19MB/s so would be hard to extract exact sizes.

 

Also I didn't seem to get email alerts this was replied to, apologies for the delay.

 

Kind regards,

 

Daniel
