Have U tried the console, (master server) -> media and device management ???

U can also get info from catalog reports.
(master server) -> netbackup management  -> catalog

file system analizer can also help you...

I hope it helps

Under the /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/bptm on Unix/Linux there are daily logs, provides the directory exists to tell NetBackup to use that log directory, that track the status of tape and simple disk backups.  Below is the information I found in the log for a previous day's backup.  It details the Media ID, Drive Name, Drive Index, KB Backed up and throughput.

You would need to write a script or program to extract the data and process it together but all the required details are on both lines including copies and fragments.

Not a built in process but the data can be located for external processing.

NOM has a report if it works for you.
6.5.3 had an issue and was suppose to be fixed in NOM 6.5.4

Thanks I'll look at NOM, the other way requires working out what jobs are multiplexed etc, not ideal.
