The total time of a Service Cycle calculated in minutes equals the number of days of the Service Cycle × 24 (hours) × 60 (minutes).
1.3 Service Downtime
When within five minutes, due to the reasons of SelectDB Cloud, all the customer's attempts to connect or send requests to the cluster fail, it is deemed that the cluster service is unavailable within the five minutes. Except for the circumstances stipulated in the exemption clause in Article 4 of this Agreement.
1.4 Service Downtime Calculated in Minutes within a Service Cycle
Within a Service Cycle, the Service Downtime minutes of a cluster equals the total Service Downtime calculated in minutes of that cluster.
1.5 Monthly Service Fee
“Monthly Service Fee” means the total charges paid by you for a single SelectDB Cloud cluster in one billing month. For the upfront lump sum payment paid by you for the Service, Monthly Service Fee equals to the lump sum payment divided by the number of months of the Service covered by such payment.Monthly Service Fee shall exclude the portion deducted by coupons or vouchers.
