In vRealize Operations , a new global property Cluster Utilization Ceiling Factor is introduced. Using Cluster Utilization Ceiling Factor, you can specify the ceiling value and calculate the base rate for a cluster.
How to Set the Cluster Base Rate Calculation Method
To change the Cluster Base Rate Calculation method, you must go to Configure > Cost Settings > Cluster Cost page. Click Change next to the Cluster Base Rate calculation method and select Cluster Actual Utilization.
Where to Find Cluster Utilization Ceiling Factor
To set the ceiling value for a cluster, you must go to Administration > Global Settings > Cost/Price>Cluster Utilization Ceiling Factor. Enter the ceiling value between 0 and 20 and click Save.
To view the change is cost metrics, run the Cost Calculation Status and select a cluster .
- Cluster Expected CPU Utilization (%) = 40
- Cluster Memory Expected Utilization (%) = 50
Actual Cluster Utilization is rounded off to the ceiling value.If you set the Cluster Utilization Ceiling Factor to either 0 or 20, then the value of Expected Memory Utilization changes to the next number. For example, if you set the ceiling factor to 0 then, the expected utilization value changes to 1.
Support to Roll up Name Space Cost Metrics
- Cost metrics of Pod VMs are rolled up to the Name Space and Guest Cluster level.
- All the cost metrics of VMs, Pods, and guest cluster which are present under Name Space are rolled up to Name Space and Guest Cluster level.
