NetBackup for Nutanix-AHV agent
The following section is applicable for NetBackup master server 8.3 or later and NetBackup client 8.3 or later.
The front-end data size that is reported for Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor is the consumed storage size. You can verify the consumed storage size on the Nutanix AHV console by navigating to Storage column. The Storage column displays the consumed storage size as compared to the total allocated storage size.under the
Accurate licensing for Nutanix-AHV virtual machine (VM) collects the total number of Front-End Terabytes (FETBs) protected by NetBackup.
The nbdeployutil utility reports actual data usage by calculating the accurate data size using the related backup VM size and policies. The following rules are applied to guarantee data size accuracy:
If identical policies are taken, the policy with higher size is counted.
If different policies use the same virtual machine (VM) identifiers, they are detected as identical policies.
The Nutanix-AHV VM can be backed up using BigData policy and by Hypervisor policy (all drives Included). If the same VM is backed up using both BigData and Hypervisor policies, you are charged once for the VM backup using Hypervisor policy.
File system backup using the agent inside the Nutanix-AHV VM is charged separately and corresponding separate rows are displayed in the nbdeployutil report.
