Fabric administrators create cost profiles to define daily costs for memory, storage, and CPU for compute resources.

The values for daily cost specified in a cost profile can be up to four decimal places, although the values are rounded to two decimal places when displayed to end users in the catalog.

Log in to the vCloud Automation Center console as a fabric administrator.

b

It is not necessary to specify a cost value for all the resources, only the resources that you want to include in cost calculations.
