Previewing cloud backup transaction counts

I’m surprised at how hard it is to find a clear answer on this, but I’m wondering if there’s any way to preview the cloud backup transaction counts for a particular operation? If not with the restic client, is there a way to use a local MinIO server to test what this might look like?

How do you predict the costs associated with your back-up, check, and prune jobs? I am trying to avoid the “try it, and then estimate future jobs based on the last one” behavior. I want more certainty than a wild-ass guess.

Thanks for any helpful advice, or for pointing me to a better resource.

If I understand correctly, I think you can utilize mc tool from minio. It has a trace functionality which shows you every request/response.
