View Credit Consumption Report

Overview

The Credit Consumption report shows the monthly consumption of credits for a specified period. By default, this period is set to 12 months. An administrator can view the report and download it. There is a provision to schedule this report as well. The report will be scheduled on the first day of every month at the time set by the administrator. Before getting into the details of this report, let's briefly know about Druva Hybrid Workloads credits and credits consumption. There are different sections of Credits Consumption on the report such as Storage, Early deletion of LTR or Archive data, and Additional Resources. In addition to that savings options like LTR Savings and Archive savings are displayed along with the Credit Balance and Credit Term.

Note: This report is not generated for customers who are onboarded through the AWS Marketplace or are in the non-term contract.

Credits  

Credits describe the prepaid storage that is consumed as the data is stored in the Druva Cloud. One Druva Phoenix credit allows you to store 1 TB of deduplicated data in the Druva Cloud for one month. A credit is expressed in TB-Month.

You can pre-purchase the Druva Hybrid Workloads credits depending on the volume of your organization’s data to be stored in the Druva Cloud. For example, if your organization needs to store an average of 10 TB of deduplicated data in the Druva Cloud each month for the next one year, you need to purchase 120 credits (TB-Months) that would be consumed as data is stored in the Druva Cloud.

Credit consumption  

Druva Hybrid Workloads billing mechanism charges for the actual storage consumed in the Druva Cloud. The Phoenix Management Console displays the balance credits in TB-Months. However, for more accurate calculation, Druva Hybrid Workloads calculates the actual credits in TB-Days and then converts the value into TB-Months. Druva Hybrid Workloads converts the credits in TB-Months into a daily equivalent in TB-Days by dividing the credits by 12 and multiplying by 365.

One TB-Month = (1/12)*365 = 30.42 TB-Days

Credits are then reduced by the daily amount stored in the Druva Cloud, after deduplication. If the Druva Cloud stores 1 TB data over 30.42 days, Druva Hybrid Workloads consumes one credit.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the Druva Cloud Platform Console. 
  2. Click Global_nav_Panel.png to access the Global Navigation Panel > Reports > Hybrid Workloads. The Hybrid Workloads Reports page appears. 
  3. Click Credit Consumption.
  4. The Credit Consumption page appears. By default, the report provides details of the resource trails that occurred in the last 30 days.
    You can apply filters to the Credit Consumption report to fetch monthly consumption of credits for a specified period.  You can view the generated report, download it, or send it through an email to the intended recipients. You can also download data in the widgets in the CSV, CSV-Summary, and PDF formats. You can sort data in the Credit Consumption Details table using single or multiple columns, and rearrange columns in the table as required.

    Note:  The timestamp recorded for the report (appearing next to the report title) follows the administrator’s time zone. However, the timestamps of the data fetched in the report follow the UTC time zone.
