What's a metric instance?
A metric instance is a metric sent from a specific source at a given frequency. For example if you send us CPU utilization from one front end server every ten seconds, that’s one metric instance. We only charge for data written to disk, so if you send us data every 20 seconds but aggregate them to a 60 second instance, we only charge for the 60 second instance.
What if I am not sending data at the frequencies you show?
We calculate the cost based on the frequency at which you have set the metric instance. For example if you are sending instances every 15 seconds then we calculate the cost based on a linear interpolation using the two closest price points. Periods over 5 minutes are priced the same.
Do you offer discounts?
What if I send too much data?
No problem at all — there is no limit to how many metric instances you can send us. Send us an email if you want to discuss your use case to email@example.com. By the way: we offer volume discounts based on your total use of Librato services.
How long do you keep my data?
The short answer is: a little over a year. We realized though that it doesn't make sense to store data over long periods of time at the native resolution — too many data points can make it hard to visualize data. To learn more please read our article about retention periods and roll ups.
