Viewing the Statement of Capacity report

If you use a third-party solution for building and managing cloud infrastructure, such as VMware vCloud Suite or Amazon Web Services, you can integrate that infrastructure as a provider type in BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management.

BMC Software might ask you to generate the Statement of Capacity report for a specific time period for licensing calculations. The Statement of Capacity report displays:

  • The daily maximum number of managed servers for the specified reporting period

Managed servers refers to number of active servers that were provisioned by BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management.
