Usage details

Overview

Administrators can access the Usage page by hovering over their username at the bottom left, then navigate to: Plan & Usage–> Usage.

The Usage page shows usage grouped by product category. You can navigate to a product tab to view usage specific to that product category or the “All” tab to view usage of all products. Each tab provides the following information:

  • Month-to-Date Summary
  • Overall Usage (current and historical)

Certain product tabs also contain additional tools:

  • Custom Metrics Tab: Top Custom Metrics
  • Log Management Tab: Logs Usage by Index

Month-to-date summary

This section summarizes your month-to-date usage. In the “All” tab, you will see your month-to-date usage of infrastructure hosts, containers, custom metrics, APM hosts, logs and any other part of the platform you’ve used during the month.

In product specific tabs, you will see your month-to-date usage of the products in that product category.

The month-to-date usage shown above is “All” usage, which includes non-billable usage such as product trials. Most accounts will also be able to view “Billable” usage, which only shows usage that contributes to your final bill. The “Billable” view also breaks out on-demand usage above your commitments and allocations.

Month-to-date usage of each product is calculated as follows:
