Usage Meter 3.6.1

Note that the below posts are still applicable for the latest version of Usage Meter 3.6.1. Please apply any necessary hot patches post-deployment.

vCloud Usage Meter was released almost two weeks ago and I wanted to provide a summary post for those of you that will be deployed/migrating to 3.6.1.

Release Notes for Usage Meter 3.6.1 

Download Page for 3.6.1

3.6.1 does have several enhancements for vROps and vSAN reporting – so I suggest migrating as soon as possible for accurate reporting.

Remember, continue to run your existing UM instance for at least two (2) months to verify billing and monitoring accuracy (i.e. ensure you aren’t missing a vCenter instance!).

This is a minor release, so my past posts all apply here.
