Usage Reporting

Last updated on 09 May, 2023

Disclaimer: This feature is currently in Open Beta and only available for LM Logs and Push Metrics. You can submit feedback about this feature directly in your LogicMonitor portal using the Support Resources. For more information, see Accessing Support Resources.

You can view the cumulative monthly usage for your organization to help you understand how and where your environment is incurring the most data usage. You can view this information directly in your LogicMonitor portal.

Note: All the usage metrics and time stamps are displayed in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

The Usage page displays metrics for each LogicMonitor product (for example, LM Logs) that you are licensed to use. You can select the product to view the applicable metrics, and view those metrics for the current month and previous months.

Based on the product you select, LogicMonitor displays information regarding your current usage and committed value. If you are at risk of running out of your committed amount, LogicMonitor predicts when you will run out of your committed amount and what the overage will be at the end of the month based on your current usage. This predication allows you to make adjustments as necessary. If you run out of your committed amount before the end of the month, LogicMonitor predicts the overage based on your current usage.

The Usage page uses the following visual components to display your Usage Reporting information:

  • Month-to-date usage summary—This visual provides you a month-to-date summary of the total cumulative usage for your selected product, as well as the percentage used of your committed amount.
  • Top Usage Analysis summary—When “LM Logs” is selected as the product, this visual provides a list of predefined queries for LM Logs. Selecting a query from the list returns the largest usage contributors for LM Logs to help you identify the most demanding log usage contributors.
  • Cumulative Usage graph—When the current calendar month is selected, you can view the cumulative usage for the month in a graph format. In addition, LogicMonitor can forecast your usage for your selected product based on your current usage trends for the current month. Hovering over the graph provides you with the usage metrics for a specific date. The graph dynamically updates based on the product you select.

Note: The Cumulative Usage graph does not display data on the first of the month.

Selecting a different month dynamically updates the metrics to reflect the month selected.
