To facilitate reporting of the vCloud Service Provider Bundles and standalone products, VMware has developed the vCloud Air Usage Meter. For full reporting requirements please see the VMware vCloud Air Network Product Guide.
The vCloud Air Network program requires that partners use the latest generally available (GA) version of vCloud Usage Meter. Supported versions of Usage Meter are Usage Meter 3.3.3 and Usage Meter 3.5. Please refer to documentation below to upgrade to the latest vCloud Usage Meter.
Usage Meter 3.5 has a familiar user interface and supports all vCloud Air Network bundles. The product incorporates over 300 bug fixes and includes performance and metering improvements.
For a complete list of metered products please visit the VMware Interop Matrix. Usage Meter 3.5 meters the following products:
• vCenter Server (6.0U2)
• NSX (6.2)
• vSAN (6.2)
• Site Recovery Manager
• vRealize Operations (6.3)
• vRealize Automation
• vCloud Director (8.10)
Migrate product configuration from versions 3.3.3 and 3.4.0. Partners should continue to run their last version of Usage Meter in parallel for the first month of reporting to compare. For more information view the Usage Meter 3.5 video.
Usage Meter 3.5 allows for increased metering scaling to 20 vCenter instances, 20,000 VMs and 1,000 customers.
