It seems like DPA can't pull the information you seek far enough back.  Your remaining options include using the Avamar Enterprise Manager to pull the capacity used over the last 9 months.

If you are an EMC Partner, you should reach out to your local resources and see if there are any other options available to you.

Let us know if that helps!

1) DPA starts collecting data as soon as an object is discovered into the management pane.  That is, when you first add the Avamar grid into the DPA environment, DPA becomes capable of collecting data from Avamar.

2) DPA doesn't "pull logs", so to speak.  DPA issues database queries to the Avamar Utility Node, and collects point-in-time statistics on capacity consumption, usage, clients, events, errors and so on. 

DPA can query some information from before its installation.  Depending on how much data is still resident in the database on the Avamar Utility Node, it may be able to provide some information about capacity utilization and consumption.  However, it might not be able to provide enough data to provide justification for the previous Avamar node purchases.  You may have to install DPA, run a report, and see what you can collect.

Let us know if that helps!
