The CloudCenter platform provides the following CloudCenter reports via the CCM UI:

Icon

The Date filter option is only available for some reports (for example, the Usage Summary Report, the Usage Details Report, and the Managed VM Inventory Report). If available, the filter options are displayed in the top right corner.

The available date filter options are explained in the following table:

Date FilterDescriptionNotes

YTDYear to dateThe current year

The current 30 days ending with today

Icon

The data that is displayed in response to a 30-Day time period request only displays data from the 1st of the month, not for the previous 30 days. To work around this issue, use the date Range option and provide the begin and end date for the required period.

60D60 DaysThe current 60 days ending with today
90D90 DaysThe current 90 days ending with today
RangeA custom range specified by the selected month and year

If using APIs, this is the only available options to display reports for a period of time based on the startDate and endDate attributes

Columns Filter

If available, the column filter settings (identified by the cog icon) are displayed in the top right corner, next to the Range date filter option. Click the cog icon to view the available columns for each report. The available columns differ for each report and you can select or deselect each column to display or hide as required.

Export Report Data

The Export Report option is available for some reports (for example, the  Usage Details Report,, the Managed VM Inventory Report, and the Unmanaged VM Inventory Report ). If available, the filter options are displayed in the top right corner, next to the cog icon or the Range date filter option (if column selection is not available for any report).

Each action is explained in the following table:

ActionDescriptionNotes
Power OnStart the VM 
Power OffShutdown the VMWhen the VM is powered off, the application using the VM will be stopped.
RebootRestart the VM 
TerminateStop and Remove the VM

This action:

  • Stops the application that is using the VM.
  • Directly terminates a running deployment, so the node clean up script is executed. See Deployment Lifecycle Scripts for additional context.
    • If you suspend the VM, and then terminate without resuming, the node clean up script is not executed.

    • If you can terminate without suspending the VM, then the node clean up script is executed.

  • At the CCO level, a  Post VM Init terminate script can be executed even when the VM is terminated from power off state or directly terminated from external cloud console. See External Service for additional context.
