Counting Requests for Every Backup Plan


Your cloud storage provider sent you a monthly bill and a detailed explanation of your charges.

Storage may account for 60-70% of the entire bill.

The rest of a bill are various paid requests to a storage provider. They can be: PUT, GET, HEAD, DELETE, and other storage requests.


You can find how much requests you use in while backing up your data. To view the number of requests, proceed as follows:

  1. Open the enginesettings.list file with any text editor. This file is located at:
  • For standalone Backup for Windows: C:\ProgramData\CloudBerryLab\CloudBerry Backup\enginesettings.list
  • For Backup Agent as a part of Managed Backup solution, the path depends on the name of the product with a custom name. In any case, it is located in ProgramData folder. Example: for the Company ABC - C:\ProgramData\Company ABC\enginesettings.list
  1. In enginesettings.list, find the following parameter: <LogRequestsOnExit>false</LogRequestsOnExit>
  2. Change the parameter value to true: <LogRequestsOnExit>true</LogRequestsOnExit>
  3. Run the backup plan.
  4. In the Tools menu, click Diagnostic, then Open in folder.
  5. Find and open the latest modified file with .log extension (file name is your backup plan ID).
  6. In the end of the file find the following records and view the number of requests:
