Job details in activity monitor

Partner    VIP    Accredited Certified
NetBackup is currently configured to remove jobs from the activity monitor after 5 days. However I now need to research some metrics on backup jobs from a couple of weeks ago. I need to find out things like backup speeds, number of files, total amount backed up, storage unit and tape drive used and number of buffers used and number of times job waited for full buffers etc. Essentially all the kind of info included in the job details. Is there a simple way to get this info back? Is there a command I can run to output a report to a text file?

what you need is trylogs and here is some info about them

these files will be deleted according to the cleanup schedule, so the only way to get them back is to restore from backup.

some data from these files (but not all) will be channelled to Ops Center if it is present and configured and will be expired there according to the OpsCenter database maintenance rules, this again depends on what sort of retention you need and what is the type of license key applied.

If regular logging is still set to the default of 28 days, you can try to run 'All Log Entries' report for the client.
From cmd,
bperror -all -client <name> -d <start-date> -e <end-date> [-L] [-v]
