You can configure vCloud Usage Meter to determine how you receive information about product consumption. This includes setting email alerts, managing access to vCloud Usage Meter, and setting collecting times that do not conflict with your server operations.

When you configure vCloud Usage Meter, you provide information about you as a service provider. vCloud Usage Meter uses that information to report consumption data.

You can configure several settings:

  • You can send metering alerts to email addresses that you provide.

  • You can set up LDAP authentication to manage who can use the application.

  • You can also adjust collection timing, in order to avoid conflicts with other server operations.
