Integrate Service Reporting in Windows Azure Pack


Applies To: Windows Azure Pack

Windows Azure Pack for Windows Server uses the Service Reporting feature provided with System Center 2012 R2 to deliver usage data about virtual machines both to administrators and to tenants. The Service Reporting feature uses a SQL agent job to collect data (using SQL Server Integration Services) and then process that data for use in reports.

You can use the data collected by Service Reporting to create detailed views for each tenant showing the consumptions of computational, memory, storage, and networking resources for virtual machines provisioned by the VM Clouds service in Windows Azure Pack.

The Service Reporting feature is installed as an optional component of System Center 2012 R2 (specifically by using the Orchestrator setup). Service Reporting aggregates data from both Operations Manager (used to collect data from VMM) and Windows Azure Pack; because of this, if you want to use Service Reporting, you need to install Operations Manager along with your VMM deployment.
