Is anyone aware of any command to get the anomalies count? This is visible when we do login to webui - but having a lot of domains it is cumbersome - thus I was thinking to alert me when this number is greater than 0 with email or in some other way.

how about Opscenter? or a script using bpdbjobs command ?

I can't find an API call available to help but the fact it is in the WebUI implies it must have one. I'll ask.
THere are also new log directories under the netbackup log dir (nbanomaly*). If you upgraded from an earlier version it is possible that these do not exist (unless you reran the mklogdir command). Thesee log files may also provide the information you are after.
The database used by the process is a SQLLite one, so if you are proficient at extracting information from this, you could always see what you can see (I have no information on the schema, so you would be on your own).

Following up from my previous post - NetBackup 10 has some new API calls that deal with anomaly detection and reporting. Not sure if this helps you in the short term, but something to work towards.
I'm unable to find anything in earlier NetBackup versions yet (but if I do I'll let you know).

Thank you @davidmoline I am looking forward to hear back from you about this API call for 9.1. We are not jumping on most recent release so we will be waiting for 10.1 or so :)
About SQL - if time will permit I will try to sniff around...

I did not find anywhere neither in OpsC nor bpdbjobs anything related to anomalies... But these should be posted to OpsC - my take.... @davidmoline any idea as to why these are not posted to OpsC or I am missing here some knowledge. it would be wise to see on overview page these numbers....

I think the simple answer is that there is no new development happening with OpsCenter. It is being maintained but that's about it. Nor could I find any mention of tables relating to anomaly detection in the schema for OpsCenter version 10.
As part of NetBackup 10 one of the new features available is Integrated IT analytics foundation (which is some of the Aptare analyics product). This is the direction I understand reporting is heading rather than OpsCenter. Have a look at the datasheet for the new version Veritas NetBackup 10 Data Sheet
Hope this helps

The API call is (and wont be) published in anything before NetBackup 10. So, sorry not available for use.
That said, why not upgrdae to the latest version when it comes out next week? The current release cycle is robust and I have heard of very few issues with the new releases. I know a lot of the long term NetBackup admins weren't scarred with the 6.0 release - but that was Symantec, since Veritas took control again, the code quality has been excellent (IMHO).

OK than from 10.x we will use it, for sure not from 10.0 ;). I have to admit that the code is of better quality but still I am not considering it as excellent ;)
My most recent finding with VRTS support was documented here - as I did insist a lot to have that in writing https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/article.100052702

You can use report API with Anomaly report ID
Optionally you can call Anomaly API with required filter can get the count from meta section of response payload
Do let me know if this help.
