Pay per use Software - T2351AA

The Pay per use (PPU) program provides you cost savings by charging only for the computing capacity you use on your HPE enterprise server. As your computing demands vary, you are charged according to a metered utilization of processing capacity. This is different than the traditional financing approaches that are based on fixed payment amounts for a specified period. The billing amounts vary as your usage needs increase or decrease.

The PPU software provides services for metering resource utilization on supported HPE systems. Depending on the type of contract a PPU system is under, utilization can be either of the actual percentage utilization of each core, or a count of the number of active cores in the system. The PPU software communicates with a utility meter to report utilization data. The utility meter in turn transmits the utilization data to HPE for proper billing.

The PPU software product T2351AA is a part of the HPE Utility Pricing Solutions (UPS) program. The PPU software is free of charge and is required to be running on all PPU HP-UX partitions. The PPU software has a very small footprint and adds negligible overhead to the system.

  • HPE Integrity servers running HP-UX 11i v2 (11.23) or HP-UX 11i v3 (11.31):
