The usage above are charged on a discrete "Named Users" per billing period basis. So, if a user A subscribes to a user plan, the count of the specific user plan usage is incremented by 1 for that tenant for that billing period independent of how many days the user A's user plan is active during that billing period. At the beginning of each billing period, CPBM updates the inventory of the current users subscribed to different plans/offerings and then updates the count accordingly each day based on new subscriptions being made.
