Webmethods Metering Setup Configuration

Product/components used and version/fix level:

webMethods 10.15

Detailed explanation of the problem:

We have 4 integration server instances running under the same installation on 2 VMs.

In this configuration should each instance be given a unique alias under the custom_wrapper.conf set.METERING_RUNTIME_ALIAS.

For example we have:

  • Instance 1A set.METERING_RUNTIME_ALIAS=Prod1A
  • Instance 1B set.METERING_RUNTIME_ALIAS=Prod1B…etc

Error messages / full error message screenshot / log file:

Question related to a free trial, or to a production (customer) instance?

If this the correct configuration? Or should we be using something like Prod1 for VM1 and Prod2 for VM2?

The alias is meant to help you identifying the self hosted runtimes in the cloud metering console.
If you give the same alias to these 4 runtimes, you’ll see consolidated metering data for these 4 runtimes.
If you give these runtimes distinct aliases, then you’ll display metering data for each runtime.

If these 4 runtimes are part of the same cluster and they have the same role, you should give them the same alias.
If they have distinct roles (for instance 2 runtimes for Active Transfer and two for Integration), then you could give them distinct aliases.
