bpmedialist -U will give you kbytes for each assigned tape.  It'll also
tell you if NBU thinks the tape is full or not.

If you have Aptare's StorageConsole, the Tape Media Summary report will
list this for every tape.  You can even drill down each tape and see
which images are on which tape.

I can't think of how to do this without StorageConsole...
