CloudMonitor:Billing of the dashboard feature

Last Updated:Nov 14, 2023

This topic describes the billing of the dashboard feature and the pricing based on the storage specification. This topic also provides billing examples.

Billing method

Bills for the dashboard feature are generated on a daily basis. Fees are calculated based on the number of daily data points for the metrics in the namespace and the unit price of the storage specification. The default storage specification is cms.s1.3xlarge, which indicates a retention period of 93 days. The fees for the dashboard feature are calculated by using the following formula:

Fees for the dashboard feature = Total number of data points × Unit price of a data point

Note

A data point represents the value of a metric at a specific point in time.

  • The value of the CPU utilization metric whose name is CPUUtilization for an Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instance at a specific point in time is equivalent to one data point.

  • The value of the disk usage metric whose name is diskusage_used for an ECS instance at a specific point in time is equivalent to one data point.

  • If you configure two listeners for a Server Load Balancer (SLB) instance, the value of the TCP active connection metric whose name is ActiveConnection for the two listeners at a specific point in time is equivalent to two data points.

Billing examples

In the following examples, the default storage specification cms.s1.3xlarge is used. The following table describes the tiered pricing based on the number of collected data points per day.

Number of data points (× 10,000)

Unit price (USD)

0 to 20,000

0.004331

20,000 to 50,000 (except 20,000)

0.00315

50,000 to 100,000 (except 50,000)

0.002432

100,000 to 9,999,999,999,999 (except 100,000)

0.001644

Note

The pricing of the dashboard feature varies based on the specified storage specification. For more information, see Pricing.

  • Example 1: If you use the dashboard feature to collect 280,000,000 data points within a day for the metrics in the namespace, the fees are calculated by using the following formula:

    Fees = 20,000 × USD 0.004331 + (28,000 - 20,000) × USD 0.00315 = USD 111.82

  • Example 2: If you have 200 ECS instances and configure 10 metrics whose collection period is 1 minute in the namespace, the daily collection fees are calculated by using the following formulas:

    1. Total number of data points = 200 × 10 × 60 (minutes) × 24 (hours) = 2,880,000

    2. Fees = 288 × USD 0.004331 = USD 1.247328
