vCenter Chargeback Config Maximums

Does anyone know of any configuration maximums in vCenter Chargeback. Planning an install at the moment and need a hierachy to support 400-500 child folders and 3000 Virtual Machines.

Is this possible?

Thanks,

Tom (DSG)

Hi

CB 1.5/1.6 supported maximum number of VMs per hierarchy is 1000. You need to create multiple hierarchies to go more than 1000 VMs per hierarchy. We are working on improving this numbers in the coming release.

Thanks Hemanth,

I was wondering, you noted that the total number of entities in a hierachy is 1000. This seems low. Our environment has 2500 VMs, does this mean we will need multiple hierachies to support it?

Tom

Does Chargeback 2.5 increase the number of VMs in a hierarchy?

Hi bec111,

The maximum # of VMs in a hierarchy for Chargeback 2.x is still 1000.  In fact, for the most part, most of the above maximums listed in this post still apply, excexpt the total # of VMs/entities in a Chargeback System has been raised from 20000 to 35000.
