I need to know the snapshot size from all my vmware clients across all backupsets and subclients in a single report. I will analyze how many free space I need on vmware datastores while backup is running.
I see the info on job details, but it would be easier if I have an own report for that in a single view.
I tried the powershell module with Get-CVJobDetails, but in the output the snapshot size is missing.

Assume that this is what you’re after for each VM backup job:
- Snapshot Size (VMware): The size of the snapshot that was taken for the VM, which includes the aggregated sizes of all delta disk files that are created while the backup was in progress.
The information is within the App_VMProp table so one approach is that you can grab from there and join with existing backup reports/datasets to get additional detail you need.
WHERE attrName = 'vmSnapshotSize'
