The group as a whole, or just individual save sessions?

And what's a failure to you?  Is one file saying "size changed" a
failure, or does an entire host have to be down?

If you're just waiting for the group to finish *and* you have no access
to the savegroup report, you can get the information out of the
'completion' attribute.

nsradmin> show completion
nsradmin> print type:nsr group; name: mygroup

It should be about the same information, but you'll have to parse it to
some extent.
