You can view the current subscription usage on each vCenter Server and determine whether the usage is beyond or within the subscription capacity you purchased.

View Subscription Capacity and Usage

Log in to the VMC Console at https://vmc.vmware.com and click Subscriptions.

Table 1. View Subscription Capacity and Usage
User Interface What Can You Do
Subscriptions View the subscription capacity purchased for your organization including details such as the billing option and the subscription term.
Licenses View the license keys for vCenter Servers that are not on subscription. You can upgrade these license keys to subscriptions. To purchase subscriptions, contact a VMware sales representative or a VMware partner.
Subscription Usage View the current usage on each vCenter Server.

To determine whether the usage is beyond or within the subscription capacity purchased:

  1. Add the cores in the Current Subscription Usage column for each vCenter Server to calculate the total number of cores being used currently in your organization.
  2. Go to the Subscriptions tab, add the values in the Quantity column for each of the subscription purchased for vSphere Advantage.
If the total number of cores is more than the total number of subscription quantities, then the current usage is more than the subscription capacity you purchased. You will be billed for overage.

View Billing

Billing for vSphere Advantage is handled through VMware Cloud services. Your billing cycle begins on the day of the month when the first service for your Organization was set up. For example, if you set up the first service in your Organization on the 15th of the month, your billing cycle runs from the 15th of the month through the 14th of the following month. See How Do I Get Billing Information for My Organization.
Note: If you purchased through a partner, pricing and payment details are not shown in the Cloud Services console. Pricing is determined by your agreement with the partner. Contact your Partner’s sales team for all questions related to pricing and billing.
