When it comes to sizing a new Backup environment or just new repository server, one metric that is always asked is the daily change rate. You can also see in the most popular - unofficial - Veeam sizer:
Even with VeeamONE it was not simple to get this information easily for VMs and physical machines. This gap was closed with the version v11a of Veeam ONE. The previous report named VM Change Rate History was replaced by the new Data Change Rate History. Fortunately not just the name changed, it also gets some new features!
What's new in report configuration
- Includes Agent backups. Now these job-types are supported:
- VM Backup
- Agent Backup
- You can select the base of change rate calculation: Data transferred or read.
What's new in the report itself
- Includes a nice graph for change rate history - for VM and agent data.
- Includes daily change rate.
- In detail - per machine
This is a great help for sizing!
