Overview

Daily Datadog costs give you visibility into daily Datadog spending across dashboards, notebooks, cost monitors, and Cloud Cost Analytics, along with your entire organization’s cloud provider and SaaS costs.

You can view daily Datadog costs in Cloud Cost Management, and access additional Datadog costs capabilities like Cost Summary and Cost Chargebacks on the Usage & Cost page.

Costs outside of Plan and Usage are based on usage only and do not include historical credits and adjustments.

Permissions

To view costs in Cloud Cost Management, you must have the cloud_cost_management_read permission, which is enabled for users with the Datadog Read Only Role.

Only existing Cloud Cost Management customers within the parent organization can access daily Datadog costs outside of Plan and Usage.

To see costs on the Usage & Cost page, see the Cost Details documentation.

Visualize and break down costs

Costs in Cloud Cost Management may not match the estimated month-to-date (MTD) costs on the Plan and Usage page because Plan and Usage costs are cumulative and are prorated monthly. Only Cloud Cost Management provides a daily calculation.

Datadog cost data is available for the past 15 months and can be used in dashboards and notebooks under the Cloud Costs data source. Create dashboards to monitor daily costs, identify trends, and optimize resource usage.
