Usage and Charging

The Usage section is split into two parts: the amount of consumed capacity as a total and as a graph by month.

Consumed capacity is calculated from all non-expired images belonging to the tenant. It can be expressed either as an absolute figure, in gigabytes, or in relation to the amount of contracted space for the tenant. When consumed capacity is shown in relation to contracted space, the value is shown both as a percentage and as an absolute amount against that total. The calculation for consumed capacity depends on the Use Data Transferred Values integration setting.

Configuring charging

You can configure charging data per tenant, per protection level or both.

When Usage calculates the price for a backup, the rules that are shown are applied:

  1. If the Tenant has charge rates and there is one for this backup's Protection Level then that charge rate is used, otherwise:

  2. If the Tenant has a default charge rate, then this default rate is used, otherwise:

  3. If there is a system-wide Protection Level charge rate for the backup then that is used, otherwise:

  4. The default system charge rate is used.

By default, NetBackup Self Service has a single system-wide charge rate that is configured to 0 USD.

If a Tenant requires Protection Level charge rates then you must provide a Tenant-wide cost.

To add or edit charges, you must log on as a service provider or administrator account and click on the Charge Rates tab. Click on Add or Edit and you can set a System/Tenant wide charge rate or override individual Protection Levels with the appropriate charge.

Note:

A computer has an associated usage record if it has a backup in NetBackup Self Service.

Note:

Only NetBackup Self Service aware NetBackup policy backups count towards usage.

Note:

When you view the Tenant Usage data, the reported CostPerGb figure is the tenant's value. If you configure the system to use Protection Level overrides, this CostPerGb is not correct. The actual costs, however, are calculated using Protection Level costs. You should use the Tenant Protection Level data for a breakdown of that Tenant's usage.
