MSDP version of Appliance: Reports / Deduplication output

Is there a command (or series of commands) that can be run on a Windows MSDP Media Server to get something like the output that an Applince kicks out when you go to Reports / Deduplication?

In most cases I'm running Server 2k12 with the Unix tools installed so I do have access to sed/awk/grep...etc....I wish MS had kept them in 2k12 R2...oh well...

  • The command i listed earlier does pipe out to an excel file and the output is quite nice really - like the appliance

    If you use "crstats --verbose>c:\stats.txt" then you get this in the text file:
