Enable commerce Robust metering for cloud storage services.

Metering for billing, reporting and service auditing

Administrators can access a data feed of transactions and requests by domain - such as storage requests, attempted logins, etc. The data feed can be parsed to create detailed billing and accounting reports for bandwidth usage, access audits, and API request summaries. Graphical reporting is also supported through the administrator portal.
