The Projected Data Consumption Field

Role Availability Read-Only Analyst Manager

USM Anywhere displays the Projected Data Consumption field through the My Subscription page. This field shows both the amount of data already stored for the month and the calculated data storage needs for the rest of the month.

Projected Data Consumption field on the My Subscription page

The Projected Data Consumption field is calculated using the following formula:

projectedMonthlyConsumption = ((currentMonthDataConsumption) / (totalDaysOfDataConsumption)) * (activeDays)

Where:

  • currentMonthDataConsumption is the total data consumed for the current month only.
  • totalDaysOfDataConsumption is the total days the system has been on for the current month (includes days with no recorded data).
  • activeDays is the total number of days the system will be up for the month.

For example, in a 30-day month, at the end of the 15th day, the instance has received 10TB of data, so the Projected Data Consumption field is calculated using the following formula:

projectedMonthlyConsumption = (10TB / 15) * 30
