Subject usage server issue - cpu and ram size
Date Thu, 21 Jan 2016 10:49:54 GMT
Hi all,

there is an issue with usage records. To the running time of a VM the usage server does not
collect any information about the size of a machine.
The fields are empty. That means if you resize a machine a few times you will know how long
the machine was running but don't know how much you need to charge because you don't know
the size of the different periods.

Does anyone have a solution or workaround?
A bug report has been opened.

Thanks and regards,

"The usage data is created without including the information of properties of the usage object.
For example if we want to bill a vm with usagetype 1 we only see the time the vm was used.
But we don't see in the usage data how many cpus, etc. the vm had at the time the usage record
was created. Thus we cannot bill changes of the vm. For example if a customer adds a cpu core
to his vm and later removes it, this should be seen in the usage records. But as far as I
know the database records are all set to NULL and cloudmonkey does not return these fields
although they are availble in the API."
