FR: Add Overhead Field to VM Configuration Chargeback Report

Post by sargent@gatech.edu »

Good day,

We would like the ability to include an "overhead" charge per Vm to be used in when calculating the VM Configuration Chargeback. This allows us to keep the unit charges static based on consumption and add our overhead cost to the total.

Thanks,
Richard

Hello Richard and welcome to the community!

Do you mean that for 0-4 vCPUs you charge $10 per vCPU and from 5th you charge $15? So VM with 4 vCPUs will cost $40 and with 6 vCPUs $70?

Thanks

Good day Nikita,

Not necessarily. What I am talking about is just an additional place to enter an overhead charge for the VM itself. Keep all the same entries for CPU,Ram, and Storage but allow a place to include an additional misc. charge.

Thanks,
Richard

Any idea when we could see it released? We are having to take the report then manualy calculate the overhead.

Thanks
Richard

Cannot commit to any ETA.
However your request which makes total sense helps us prioritize the feature.
