Improved azure backup data and statistics
It would be great if Azure could provide more detailed backup information for Aure VM's backed up to Vaults.
The following metrics would be great:
1. The amount of data transferred to the Vault when a snapshot/backup has been taken
2. The amount of space used for an each snapshot that a VM has.
3. The total space used for snaps/backups by a VM
These netric should also be made available by APIs, powershell etc
This would take the guess work out of load balancing VMs, as per MS azure best practice and would enable as to script and automate backup provisioning. It would also enable us to bill clients at a more granular level.

a throughput metric would also be useful as it's unclear when the backup preparation operations stop and the data transfer operation starts, to enable me to calculate it myself.
