Fabric administrators can assign a cost profile to a compute resource to apply those costs to all machines provisioned on that compute resource.


Create a Cost Profile.


  1. Select Infrastructure > Compute Resources > Compute Resources.
  2. Point to a compute resource and click Edit.
  3. Click the Configuration tab.
  4. Select a cost profile from the Cost Profile drop-down menu.

    The costs for memory, storage, and CPU appear, and the cost for each datastore is populated with the storage cost from the cost profile, unless a storage cost profile is applied to that datastore.

  5. Click OK.


If reservations for this compute resource exist, the costs for each datastore are also populated based on the cost profile.
