I was wondering if there is any way to get capacity planning in the reports "Capacity Planning" and "How Many More VMs Can be Provisionned", farther then 6 months.
Right now, After tuning my metrics in the reports, I see that most of my ressources have the "infinite" signs when looking at "How Many Days". It seems that the report cannot predict more than 6 months in the future, which is not very useful when trying to establish a budget for the whole fiscal year.

Hello Dominic, As you mentioned, for now data is analyzed for the next 6 months, because it seems to be the best planning interval. A lot of things are usually changed during the whole year. Note that this "days left" are provided till you reach the predefined threshold. So, changing the threshold can be helpful for longer-term planning. However we will take your opinion into account and think how to fulfill your request. Thank you for the feedback!

I got a customer here for who this issue is make or break regarding his use of Veeam ONE. Without capacity planning that stretch to at least 12 months, he is basically saying he has no uses for ONE, has he already have a decent monitoring system in place.
I see that in the "Reporter's" "Configuration Tab" there seems to be a place that would allow to "import" a report. Would it be possible for Veeam to create a custom report for this customer?

Dominic, infinite means that the number of days to reach the threshold is greater than 180. Sometimes trend of resource usage is not growing, so the threshold will never be reached and the best Veeam One can show is infinity sign. I also don`t see a lot of sense to write huge numbers like 4500 days left if the performance trend is growing slow, since things change much faster and in practice. Nevertheless, I agree that expanding the number of days to 365 before it becomes infinite makes sense and as Vitaliy mentioned we`ve already took it into consideration for future releases. Thanks again for the feedback!
