Datadog calculates your current estimated usage in near real-time. Estimated usage metrics enable you to:
Note: These usage metrics are estimates that won’t always match up to billable usage given their real-time nature. There is a 10-20% difference between estimated usage and billable usage on average. Due to the nature of the estimations, the margin of error is larger for small usage.
Estimated usage metrics are generally available for the following usage types:
|Logs Ingested Bytes|
|Logs Ingested Events|
|APM Indexed Spans|
|APM Ingested Bytes|
|APM Ingested Spans|
|Serverless Lambda Functions|
|API test runs|
|Browser test runs|
Log-based usage metrics must be manually enabled from the Generate Metrics page.
For accounts with multiple organizations, you can roll up estimated usage from child organizations using the
from field to monitor usage across your entire account.
