Fabric administrators can assign a cost profile to a compute resource to apply those costs to all machines provisioned on that compute resource.

1

Select Infrastructure > Compute Resources > Compute Resources.

2

Point to a compute resource and click Edit.

3

Click the Configuration tab.

4

Select a cost profile from the Cost Profile drop-down menu.

The costs for memory, storage, and CPU appear, and the cost for each datastore is populated with the storage cost from the cost profile, unless a storage cost profile is applied to that datastore.

5

Click OK.

If reservations for this compute resource exist, the costs for each datastore are also populated based on the cost profile.
