This topic describes the billing of Machine Learning Designer in Machine Learning Platform for AI (PAI).
General components provided in Machine Learning Designer can be billed only in pay-as-you-go mode. Deep learning components can be billed in pay-as-you-go or subscription mode.
The fee charged for one billable hour covers the usage of one CPU core and 4 GB of memory in one hour. The following formula describes how to calculate the number of billable hours:
Number of billable hours = Max (Number of CPU cores × Usage duration, Memory size × Usage duration/4)Note The memory size is measured in GB. The usage duration is measured in hours.The following formula shows how to calculate the number of billable hours when you use 2 CPU cores and 5 GB of memory in one hour:
Number of billable hours = Max (2 × 1, 5 × 1/4) = 2The following formula describes how to calculate the bill amount:
Bill amount = Number of billable hours × Unit price
Prepaid amount = Price of the subscribed model × Subscription duration
- Valid range of subscription duration: 1 to 12 months. Each month contains 30 calendar days.
- After you purchase resources, the resources are free of charge on the current day and the subscription takes effect from the next day. For example, you purchased a dedicated resource group on July 31, 2019, and the subscription duration is one month. Then, the resource group expired at 00:00:00 on August 31, 2019.

Handling of overdue payments
Causes of overdue paymentsYour account balance is insufficient.
- Subscription: Your account balance is insufficient to pay for subscription fees.
- Pay-as-you-go: Your account balance is less than the bill amount of the previous billing cycle. If the system fails to deduct fees, your account enters the overdue state.
- In PAI, bills are generated by using the T + 1 settlement method. If your account enters the overdue state, you are notified by text message.
- PAI ensures that your pipelines work normally within 24 hours after your account enters the overdue state. After 24 hours, your pipelines are stopped.
