9.12. How can I limit the amount of data that I'm backing up?

You can limit your manual backups by stopping the upload before it reaches the daily limit. This cannot be done on the command line, but only in the Graphical User Interface.
  • Start a manual backup, using the appropriate instructions from our section on Using TSM Backup & Restore on your client platform.
  • In the Task List window, click on Report; this opens a Backup Report window that shows the running total (listed as Bytes Transferred).
  • When the total is approaching the limit, close the Backup Report window and click on Stop in the Task List window.
