I need to know how long it will take a backup to complete.

Sometimes a backup may be needed as soon as possible, or it may seem like a backup is taking longer than it should.
Unfortunately it is very difficult to estimate that, it depends on speed of the network to point where backup is stored, speed of I/O on the Backup server and on the SAN. Also the CPU load at the server where backup is taking, the size of the disk, usage and size/type of files being backed up. Due to all of these factors there is no reliable way to estimate the time it will take for a backup to complete.
