HCP Chargeback Collection utility

This tool collects chargeback reports from Hitachi Content Platform systems.

 

Chargeback reports are a good source of information for system analysis,

enabling you to adjust storage and bandwidth allocations based on usage

patterns. These reports can also serve as input to billing systems that need to

determine charges for capacity and bandwidth usage at the tenant or namespace

level.

 

Features

* Stores chargeback reports on local disk and/or to an HCP Namespace (with

  retention added, if required).

* Builds up a report repository over an HCPs lifetime, if run regularly.

* Remembers the last collection time per Tenant, so that subsequent runs

  will collect newer reports, only.

* Highly configurable through a config file.

* Provides Charts visualizing the data

 

 

Dependencies

You need to have at least Python 3.5 installed to run **hcplogs**.

 

It depends on [hcpsdk](http://hcpsdk.readthedocs.org), used to access HCP.
