About Veritas Smart Meter
Veritas Smart Meter helps you manage your NetBackup deployment more efficiently, spot trends, and plan for the future. With accurate, near real-time reporting, it reveals the total amount of data that is backed up. Smart Meter alerts you if you are close to exceeding your licensed capacity limits. You must be at NetBackup 8.1.2 or later to use Smart Meter.
Smart Meter provides:
Accurate, near real-time reporting of terabytes protected
A graphical display of usage trends
Tracking of consumption and alerts before licensed capacity is exceeded
Easy capacity planning and budgeting, for each of your accounts
Identification of growth spikes or potential gaps in coverage
For customers who use capacity licensing (NDMP, Limited Edition, or Complete), Smart Meter helps accurately measure capacity usage to give total visibility into how each of the protected workloads consumes storage, enabling efficient capacity planning. Smart Meter also eliminates the need for these customers to manually upload telemetry data to Veritas.
The following licensing types are not supported: NetBackup Enterprise Virtual Client License (NEVC), Traditional, and Big Data
