[Openstack-operators] How are you handling billing/chargeback?

We’re using a combination of cASO (https://caso.readthedocs.io/en/stable/) and some low level libvirt fabric monitoring. The showback accounting reports are generated with merging with other compute/storage usage across various systems (HTCondor, SLURM, ...)

It would seem that those who needed solutions in the past found they had to do them themselves. It would be interesting if there are references of usage data/accounting/chargeback at scale with the current project set but doing the re-evaluation would be an effort which would need to be balanced versus just keeping the local solution working.

    So far it looks like everyone is using a homegrown solution.  Is
    anyone using an existing product/project?
