Chargeback reports allow IaaS administrators, tenant administrators, and business group managers to track the cumulative cost of provisioned machines over time.

Chargeback cost is calculated differently for each machine type. See Chargeback Cost Calculation.

Table 1. Chargeback Reports

Report

Role Restrictions

Monitor machine costs at the business group level. By default, the report shows the first 100 most expensive machines. You can filter these reports by business group and by machine type, and run the report with different time parameters. For example, you can see the cost of all machines owned by all business groups last year, or you can view the cost of physical machines owned by business group B last week.

Chargeback by Allocated Resources by Group

Business group managers see reports only for the business groups that they manage. IaaS administrators and tenant administrators see reports for all business groups within the tenant.
