Ingested data volume (raw data)

When data is uploaded to Log Service, the data is compressed. The ingested data volume is the size of raw data that is uploaded to Log Service.

Pay-as-you-go: Daily fee of ingested data volume = Total volume of ingested raw data per day (unit: GB) × Price per GB of raw data.

Storage usage of the hot storage tier

The storage usage of the hot storage tier is the total size of compressed log data and indexes that are created on raw log data. You are charged for data storage 30 days after the data is stored.

For example, the size of raw log data that is uploaded to Log Service is 1 GB, and indexes are created for two fields. The compression ratio is 5:1 when the raw log data is uploaded, and the size of the indexes is 0.5 GB. In this example, the storage usage of the hot storage tier is calculated by using the following formula: 0.2 GB + 0.5 GB = 0.7 GB.

Pay-as-you-go: Daily fee of the storage usage of the hot storage tier = Storage usage per day (unit: GB) × Price per GB of log data.

None

Storage usage of the IA storage tier

You are charged for Infrequent Access (IA) storage (formerly known as cold storage) 30 days after data is moved to the IA storage tier.

After you enable the intelligent tiered storage feature, logs that are stored longer than the specified data retention period for hot storage are moved to the IA storage tier. In this case, you are charged based on the storage usage of the IA storage tier. The storage usage of the IA storage tier is the total size of compressed log data and indexes that are created on raw log data.

For example, the size of raw log data that is uploaded to Log Service is 1 GB, and indexes are created for two fields. The compression ratio is 5:1 when the raw log data is uploaded, and the size of the indexes is 0.5 GB. In this example, the storage usage of the IA storage tier is calculated by using the following formula: 0.2 GB + 0.5 GB = 0.7 GB.

Pay-as-you-go: Daily fee of the storage usage of the IA storage tier = Storage usage per day (unit: GB) × Price per GB of log data.

None

Read traffic over the Internet

  • If data in Log Service is read and consumed by third-party applications, you are charged for the read traffic over the Internet. The traffic is calculated based on the data after compression.

  • If data is transformed across regions, you are charged for read traffic over the Internet. The traffic is calculated based on the data after compression.

Pay-as-you-go: Daily fee of read traffic over the Internet = Read traffic over the Internet per day × Price per GB of read traffic over the Internet.
