Problem

The ' Current Kilobytes Written ' displays inaccurate values in the job details for optimized duplication (opt-dup) jobs.

Example: two backups were ran job ids 78 and 79.  Each job wrote 50000128 KB

Optimized duplication job 81 duplicated these two images and reports that it duplicated 150000384 KB.

Error Message

No Error message

Cause

A defect was found in the product.

Solution

The size of the duplicated images did not change - the problem is only observed in the job details of the activity monitor.

Engineering will address this issue in the next release of the NetBackup via Etrack 3972282.  Note, the same issues occur in NetBackup 8.2 and this is reported to Veritas engineering on Etrack 3993760.
