Description

A small description for a cluster

vRealize Business for Cloud

Not applicable

Number Servers

Number of servers under the vCenter Server cluster or the number of servers matching the configuration

vCenter Server and vRealize Business for Cloud

Not applicable

vCenter Server

Not applicable

CPU Utilization (%)

Utilization percentage compared to CPU capacity

vCenter Server

Not applicable

CPU Expected Utilization (%)

The expected CPU utilization level that the cluster is expected to operate

vRealize Business for Cloud

Not applicable

CPU Base Rate

The unit rate of CPU per GHz per month for the cluster

vRealize Business for Cloud

Not applicable

CPU Unallocated Costs

The amount of unallocated CPU cost on the cluster.

vCenter Server

The unallocated cost is computed as:

(Percentage of CPU expected utilization divided by 100 * CPU capacity - (minus) CPU utilization Ghz) * CPU Base rate

RAM Capacity (GB)

Total RAM capacity of all matching servers

vCenter Server

Not applicable

RAM Utilization (GB)

Total RAM utilization of all matching servers

vCenter Server

Not applicable

RAM Utilization (%)

Total RAM utilization of all matching servers

vCenter Server

Not applicable

RAM Expected Utilization (%)

The RAM expected level that the cluster is expected to operate

vCenter Server

Not applicable

RAM Unallocated Costs

The amount of unallocated RAM cost on the cluster.

vCenter Server

The unallocated cost is computed as:

(Percentage of RAM expected utilization divided by 100 * RAM capacity - (minus) RAM utilization GB) * RAM Base rate

RAM Base Rate

The unit rate of RAM per GB per month for the cluster

vCenter Server

Not applicable

Total Monthly Cost

Total monthly cost of the cluster

vRealize Business for Cloud

The calculation is sum of total monthly cost of all matching servers in the cluster

Allocated cost

Total allocated cost on the cluster

vRealize Business for Cloud

The calculation is Total monthly cost - (minus) Unallocated cost

Unallocated cost

Total unallocated cost of both CPU and RAM

vRealize Business for Cloud

The calculation is sum of RAM Unallocated cost + sum of CPU Unallocated cost

Allocated cost (%)

Percentage of allocated cost compared with total monthly cost

vRealize Business for Cloud

Not applicable
