Change is CPU Licensing model to reflect the real-time usage of CPU and not the high water mark
I am asking the Offering Management to look at the way the Licensing Charges are calculated. Currently, they are using the High Water Mark model where the total number of CPUs license is per the declarative upper CPU limit of each pod that ran during a single year. What I am proposing is to calculate on a different model that will calculate the cpu by time. eg: 99% of the time we run our load with a total of 4 cpu, while when starting up pods, more than 60 cpus are needed for 5 minutes or 10 minutes until the pods are fully loaded and accepting traffic. The cost difference between 60 CPUs and 4 CPUs are quite significant and not realistic to the load we are running.
