Generic usage based billing for VPS

315 views 0

Prerequisites:

In order to use the generic usage billing, you need to have a setup like described here.

Setup instructions:

  • Create new product with article number VPS-GENERIC-METERING (name can be changed in Scheduled Tasks: Usage data collection plugin configuration)
  • Setup product counters that have same id as Gnocchi (Ceilometer) metrics

Example counter setup:

This counter is setup to read incoming network bandwidth in KB using network.incoming.bytes metric. This metric unit is B so we have to set measurement unit as 1.000.00 to get KB.

How this looks to end user:
