For a period of 36 months back, you can download a report bundle with the monthly product consumption data collected by the registered vCloud Usage Meter instances. The report bundle contains the aggregated per-contract, per-site, per-customer, per-instance product consumption reports and the per-instance virtual machine history, and cluster history reports.
