You can check if your vCloud Usage Meter instance is uploading usage data to VMware within the vCloud Usage Insight UI.

Prerequisites

  • Your vCloud Usage Meter instances are registered with Commerce Portal.

Procedure

  1. In the top left pane, click Usage Meters.
    A table with all registered vCloud Usage Meter instances opens.
  2. To check the reporting status of your vCloud Usage Meter instance, point to the Status icon next to the vCloud Usage Meter label.
    Status Description
    Green Your vCloud Usage Meter instance is uploading usage data to VMware. The tool tip displays:
    Usage Meter is uploading data to VMware. Last upload received on date_of_last_report
    Red Your vCloud Usage Meter instance is not uploading usage data to VMware. The tool tip displays either of the following messages:
    • Usage Meter has never uploaded data to VMware.
    • Usage Meter has not uploaded recent data to VMware. Last upload received on 
      date_of_last_report.

    If the status of your vCloud Usage Meter instance is red, verify the vCloud Usage Meter instance is configured correctly. For more information, see Configuring vCloud Usage Meter.

    You must wait for approximately 30 minutes after registering a newly deployed vCloud Usage Meter instance with Commerce Portal, before its status is updated.
