Hyper-V Replication Sizes - can I see how much data has been replicated in event viewer/log files anywhere?

As per the title - I have Hyper-V replication running between many 2012R2 servers.

I would like to find out how much data has been sent during the replication processes on these servers.

is there a place where Hyper-V logs say something like "Replicated at 2.05pm, size of replication was.... xxMB?"

In 'Replication Health...' I can see average size (over last 13 hours for whatever reason), maximum size and pending size.... but what I'm really looking for is logs where I can, for example, add up the total replication sizes put over a given link in, say, a week.

So.... where is the Replication History/Stats kept, if at all?

Thanks

sorry mate. there are no events with the info you need. its only accessible in powershell.

you'll probably have to use a powershell script to run at set intervals and write the info you need out to a file.

Hi
Thanks for that - at least it confirms I can stop looking for where it's stored!
Not great on powershell scripts but might be able to assess amount of data going through switches - it's just to get an idea of how much replication data will be generated if we choose an external site to replicate to.

replication uses something similar to a vhd delta file (like snapshots). you could always try taking a snapshot and see how it grows over a period of time to get an idea of the changes that would be replicated? not ideal but worth a try (assuming your storage is OK with the extra load as snapshots can increase IO a bit)
