The usage statistics feature allows you to query the usage of resources, such as the streaming bandwidth and traffic, the number of ingested streams, the transcoding duration, and the number of live recording channels. This topic describes how to view the usage details of your ApasaraVideo Live resources.

Time granularity

You can query resource usage in the Alibaba Cloud CDN console or by calling API operations. However, the maximum time range that you can query and the maximum period of time within which historical data is available are different. The following table describes the maximum time range to query, the period within which historical data is available, and data delay.
