This portlet allows the users of the infrastructure to view the accounting information (based on the resources consumption and collected) in a graph form (aggregated data).

Below is shown the overall layout of the Accounting Manager:

Accounting Manager Overall


The purpose of the portlet is to have the views and the data customized by the user roles and the scopes, avoiding to present all accounting records as the first glance and showing some graphs by resource type. For each graph there are filter and time aggregation options.

Following a complete description of these graphs by resource type:


  1. Operation Count : represents the count value.
  2. Data Volume : represents the data volume value.

Below is shown an example of the available graph for the Storage resource type:

  3. Max Invocation Time : represents the max invocations time of operations.

Below is shown an example of the available graph for the Service resource type:
