If you do not know how many TB you are entitled to the speak with Symantec licensing and get set up on the licensing portal to manage your licenses:

http://www.symantec.com/support/assistance_care.jsp

Somewhere you should also have a pdf of the license which tells you what you have and your customer number.

Your Symantec reseller (whoever you bought it from) should also be able to help here - ask them via e-mail for an Install Base Report for NetBackup

Once you know the TB you are licensed for then this relates to a single full backup of everything that you back up - so Front End means how much data out there do you back up in a single backup - doesn't matter how many backup you take or what type - just the total of everything backed up once.

There is a tool built into NetBackup named nbdeployutil which can help you calculate this value - google it for more details

Hope this helps
