Compression and Deduplication

Hello Again 😖

We’re on Veeam 11.0.1.1261 P20220302. Only using the Backup and Replication portion. No VeeamOne etc.. Am curious if there’s a way to get a summary of what type of compression/deduplication ratios we’re seeing besides what’s on the email generated on job completion.

I assume each job is going to be different. You’ll probably get better ratios on full backups than incremental.

Do I need VeeamONE here to do this?

Hi @jaceg23

some time ago I’ve found this article.. I think is what you’re looking for with powershell script

Hi @jaceg23 

Just wanted to let you know, your backup server runs a really old version (out of support already). Your build is affected by a known security vulnerability. It can be fixed by an update to the latest patch of V11a:

Or better, upgrade to V12.* which is the only supported version of our product at the moment:

Best,

This is somewhat an older post, but I believe it still holds true. A Veeam Product Manager shares in a Forum post, & confirms what Chris stated, about email reports having a tab for compression /dedup ratios (aside from VeeamONE).

You just need to enable the Job reports for success if you don't already.

Other than the reports for email not sure you can get this without Veeam ONE to be honest unless the is a PowerShell command possibly.
