Compute Service Cost KPI


The MEM KPI gives the information on the Random Access Memory resources cost.

RAM resources are billed for instance uptime on hourly basis, provided that the average RAM usage is 730.5 hours per month.

This cost also depends on the shapes of the machines used in the project:

Instance Type #vCPU Memory AWS shape mapping
Micro 1 512MB t1.micro
Mini 1 1GB t1.micro
Small 1 1.7GB m1.small
Medium 2 3.75GB m1.medium
Large 2 7.5GB m1.large
XL 4 7.5GB c1.xlarge
2XL 4 15GB m2.xlarge
3XL 8 15GB m1.xlarge

On the Monitoring page, the value display colour indicates the changes in the KPI value according to the following scheme:

  • Grey: the value didn't change during the last seven days
  • Red: the current value is the maximum one for the last seven days
  • Yellow: the current value is the minimum one for the last seven days
  • Green: the current value is in a "normal" scope, i.e., it does not reach neither maximum, nor minimum point
