my company was using brbackup on TSM using util_file all the past years - and during brbackup runs we always got an estimation about the expected end time ... now we are going to test brbackup with RMAN (still on TSM)
During first test I miss the information from brbackup about the"percentage done" and "estimated end time" (brbackup code BR0204I) which I usually got when using util-File.
I just get messages like this ...
BR0280I BRBACKUP time stamp: 2010-09-02 15.58.38
BR0202I Saving /oracle/SBS/sapdata2/sr3d_109/sr3d.data109
That's the kind of message I am missing ...
BKI0023I: Time: 08/11/10 19:41:07 Done: 69.852 GB (3.8 %) of 1830.267 GB. Estimated end time: 08/11/10
In Case I just perform an backup validate (brbackup -w only_rmv) I get the estimations as expected (?)
BR0569I Verification of /oracle/SBS/sapdata3/sr3d_94/sr3d.data94 using RMAN successful
BR0280I BRBACKUP time stamp: 2010-09-02 09.10.53
BR0063I 1 of 205 files processed - 10236.008 of 1858793.789 MB done
BR0204I Percentage done: 0.55%, estimated end time: 11:41
Does anybody have a hint how to get this "nice" estimation information when performing a real brbackup?
