Azure VM's - billing report (detailed view?)


  • Hello,

    I am planning to use the virtual machine (preview) feature of windows azure, initially with about 10 virtual machines.

    I wonder if the reports of use (for billing purpose) of the windows azure are detailed in relation to the resources used BY EACH of the virtual machines, or if the resources consumed are presented consolidated by type.

    My goal is to get the cost of EACH virtual machine (procs allocated bandwidth usage + + storage usage).

    That would be possible?

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi,

    As far a I know the billing will just show the total for all the services used, it wou't show per VM. You could prprly get an approximate idea of usage by looking at the usage of the machines in the performance view.

    I think many customers would like to have a better pricing breakdown, and a per VM model would be a grea feture to have.
