If you have activated the Pro Edition of ARMS Application Monitoring, you will be charged normally. For free trial users, resource quota will be deducted. To avoid unnecessary charges, we recommend that you disable PHP applications that do not require monitoring.

Estimate monitoring costs of PHP applications

To estimate the monitoring cost, click ARMS price calculator. You can also estimate the cost as follows: Number of monitored sites × hours × unit price.

Take the China (Hangzhou) region as an example. Assume that there are 20 machines and two PHP sites are deployed on each machine. You can estimate the monthly cost as follows:

  • If you choose pay-as-you-go, cost = 20 × 2 × 24 × 30 × 0.28 = 8,064 (CNY).
  • If you choose a resource package subscription, you only need to purchase the Medium Resource Package at CNY 4,200.
