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
* 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
