Subscription usage

This feature is available only for certain subscription levels.

If you are the Owner or Administrator of an organization, you have access to detailed usage metrics for your subscription, including some or all of the following measurements that may affect your subscription’s cost:

  • Views: Requests made to your application, excluding static files such as CSS and image files. This metric is not related to the contributed Views module in Drupal.
  • Visits: One or more requests to your application from the same client device in a sliding 60 minute window.
  • Applications: The total number of applications allowed in your subscription.
  • CDEs: The total number Cloud Platform CD environments allowed in your subscription.

When a usage metric reaches 75% of the limit specified in your contract, the graph for that metric will change from green to yellow.

When a usage metric exceeds the limit specified in your contract, Cloud Platform will display a warning message and the graph for that metric will change from yellow to red, as in the following example:
