Metering

On Renesas IoT Sandbox, you are given a set amount of credits for daily use.

To review your metering details, visit your Project Info page. Here, you can see we meter in several categories:

  • Users
  • Storage
  • Events
  • Workflow Events Generated
  • Workflow Credits



Users

The number of users you have is the sum of all your API Basic Users.

Note: Unlike the other meters, the User meter is not reset on a daily basis

Exceeding the Limit

If your API call would cause the user meter to go over the limit, it will be rejected.


Events

The events meter tracks the following quantities related to events:

  1. Events pushed via API (1 credit)
  2. Events read via API (10 credits)

The sum of these quantities is the value shown by the event meter. The event meter is reset every 24 hours based on the time you signed up.

Exceeding the Limit

If your API call would cause the event meter to go over the limit, it will be rejected.


Workflow Events Generated

The Workflow Events Generated meter tracks the number of events generated by your workflows.

The event meter is reset every 24 hours based on the time you signed up.

Exceeding the Limit

Once your Workflow Events Generated meter has reached the limit, your workflows will no longer execute until the next reset period.


Workflow Credits

Workflow credits are used whenever your workflows call M1 workflow library functions. Some functions cost more credits than others; costs for all functions are shown below (any function not listed has 0 cost):
