What is VCloud Usage Meter? Why do you require the appliance to be Installed?

The vCloud Usage Meter is an application available in the form of a virtual appliance that is installed by the Partner to meter, collect product consumption data, and generates reports for products that are part of the VMware Cloud Provider Program (VCPP) bundles and standalone VMware Products. Installation of the Usage Meter tool is a requirement prior to Production deployment through VCPP. The current supported version of Usage Meter is v3.6.1 and recommend Partners to deploy and upgrade to this version.

Partners are required to report the data monthly through rhipe’s PRISM Portal for diagnostic and billing purposes. This report will also be reviewed by VMware for any compliance check activities.
