Using OSSV to determine a host's change rate or quantity of blocks changed?

[ Edited ]

I have a customer looking for an easy way to determine the day-to-day *block-level* change rate on their open systems hosts. The first thing that came to mind was using OSSV. As part of its day-to-day backups OSSV has to find the changed blocks that need to be backed-up. Is there a way to see how many changed blocks OSSV found (to calculate the change-rate), or the amount of blocks its preparing to send (quantity of changed blocks)?   Could the debugging/trace files provide this information?   Is there a way to get this information without actually sending the SnapVault over the network?

If it's a Windows host you can download the OSSV Profiler from the Field Portal and use it to determine the change rate.

Thanks,

Chris

Hijacking an old thread here.... Where is the OSSV Profiler? I can't see it in the utility toolchest? I wanted to use it to profile change rate on a few Servers?
