Usage and Bills
After creating a warehouse, SelectDB Cloud collects the usage of different resources in a warehouse, including computing and storage, to help you analyze the cost distribution in a specific warehouse.
Click Usage in the navigation bar on the left to view the current warehouse usage information.
The SelectDB Cloud collects the above usage information of the entire organization every minute, deducts fees by the hour, and generates hourly billings and monthly bills, which are mainly provided to the organization administrators for reconciliation and cost analysis.
In Billing Overview page, you can view or export the bills.
If the balance is insufficient or no other deduction channels can be used, SelectDB Cloud will stop the service, but the data will be retained for 7 days.
To keep the online service running continuously, please ensure that the balance is sufficient or use a cloud marketplace deduction channel.
