VSPP Partners Check Your vCloud Usage Meter vRAM Calculation

We catch that vDirector Usage Meter vRAM billing calculation change after vCenter upgrade to last version ūüėÄ
We learned that ‘There is a bug which is not recorded in system.’
A new billing memory calculation is simplified and no longer limits billable vRAM based on reservation pool virtual datacenters.
