Utility Pricing Meter Software 8.17 - T2805AA

The HP Utility Meter software (product number T2805AA) collects usage information from the devices under an HP Utility Pricing Solutions (UPS) contract and sends the data in a secure way to HP. In this program, customers are charged according to usage of the Pay per use (PPU) resources and Utility Ready Storage (URS) resources under a UPS contract. There is no geographical limit to where the Utility Meter and the devices under a UPS contract are located.

The HP Utility Meter is a combination of both an HP server running HP-UX and the HP Utility Meter software. The Utility Meter 8.17 software supersedes all previous versions, but it is not a mandatory upgrade. The Utility Meter 8.17 software supports PPU servers and for URS it supports a selection of HP Storageworks XP and EVA disk arrays, HP Virtual Tape Libraries devices and HP, Brocade and Cisco SAN switches.

Important Note for PPU Agent Users:
If you are using PPU Agents and need to restore your system, version 8.13 is still available. All new installations should be done using 8.17, but restoration for PPU Agent support is possible. Please click the link below for more information.

The Utility Meter 8.17 software runs on an Itanium system and is compatible with HP-UX 11i v2, and 11i v3.

Note: The Utility Meter hardware must run the Utility Meter software application exclusively. That is, only the Utility Meter processes and services are allowed on the Utility Meter hardware.


The Utility Meter software is dependent on the following HP software installed on an external system:

  • For XP metering : HP Storageworks Command View Advance Edition
  • For EVA metering : HP Command View EVA
  • For HP/Brocade SAN switch metering : Brocade SMI-S Agent
  • For Cisco SAN switch metering : CIM server enabled on the switch
