Understanding the Report Format

All Eucalyptus reports contain a usage section. The instance report also contains a running time section.

The usage section shows cumulative (cumul.) metrics for each zone, account, and user. Then the report lists metrics for each resource. The column for each resource type (for example, Instance Id or Volume Id displays cumul. for all cumulative metrics. When individual resources are reported, the individual resource's name or identifier displays in that column.
