Product Documentation

In addition to the current release notes, you can use the documentation set for vCloud Usage Meter 3.6 that includes the following deliverables.

Upgrade

vCloud Usage Meter 3.6.0.1 is installed as a new appliance. You can migrate data to vCloud Usage Meter 3.6.0.1 from vCloud Usage Meter 3.5.0.0 and 3.6.0.0.

You can migrate configuration and metering data and then use the new vCloud Usage Meter 3.6.0.1 instance to report usage for the month, in which the installation takes place.

The migrateum operation exports the dbdump from the source vCloud Usage Meter and then imports it to the target instance. There are conversion processes for NSX, vSAN and vRealize Operations Manager. Exporting and importing the dbdump, and conversion processes are time-consuming operations. If your source vCloud Usage Meter instance does not have NSX, vSAN and vRealize Operations Manager added for metering, the time to complete the migration decreases. Other factors that might affect the time to complete the migration are network, virtual environment, and storage. Based on test results, the migrateum execution time varies from three minutes to ten minutes.
