[Veritas-bu] Post backup scripts?

Hi Matt,

Combine what David told you with a script around "bpimagelist -A -hoursago
24" or using the the -d and -e switch to specify the time window you can get
the info you need.

The output contains client name, backup time, elapsed time, kilobytes, # of
files and more. Parsing it im not so sure about in windows but this would be
simple on unix.

Hope that helps

Andre' Lue

Hi David,
	Thanks for sending that, I read it yesterday, but it's not really
giving me the information I need. I would love to be able to know how much
data was backed up. That's probably the most important thing. But from what
the Veritas Docs say, I really don't get that passed to the bpend_notify

You are looking for bpend_notify.bat it gets placed on the client.
