Issue/Introduction

The usage_metering 9.22 is generating corrupt reports. For example, I can see a extension-less 0kb file called "100". File cannot be opened, or cannot be deleted. (corrupted) 

 

Cause

The root cause is a "not valid windows file name". If any of the defined Origin contains an invalid/unsupported char (I.e. the character  ":" ) this issue will occur. 

Example invalid Origin: "Origin : 1" 



 

Environment

Release:
Component: UIMUSM

Resolution

The hotfix usage_metering_v9.22_build02 resolves this issue and can be downloaded here
Wit this build, If the probe detects an invalid/unsupported char (I.e. the character  ":" ) it will replace it with "-" (only for file name)
