Usage Calculation for the VM Sockets on Hypervisor Hosts License

The following data is included in the usage calculation for VM Sockets on Hypervisor Hosts.

Included Data

Counts all the number of CPU sockets on physical protected hosts with the Virtual Server Agent based on the last successful full or synthetic full backup of a virtual machine that resides on the host.

Usage Increase

Usage can increase by adding more hypervisor hosts, which also increases the number of backup jobs.

Usage Decrease

Capacity usage can decrease because of any of the following actions:

  • Removing Hypervisor hosts from the CommCell environment and aging the backup jobs that ran for those Hypervisor hosts.

  • Disabling activity on subclients.

Excluded Data

Excluded data includes hypervisor hosts where full or synthetic full backups do not complete on any of the virtual machines residing in the host.
