WTF is a MetricTon?

WTF is a

A MetricTon (MT) is our name for a basic “unit of monitoring”. Each MT includes the following capacity:

Unique series: 3,000+
Datapoints per minute: 18,000+

Each MT has enough capacity to handle monitoring 20+ “normal servers”
(assuming 150 series per server at 10 second resolution)

Frequently asked questions

  • Is it easy to set up?

    Sending data is easy, and you can keep using your existing agents like collectd or snap. We accept data in Graphite line protocol and metrics 2.0 format. We also provide a relay that you can use to duplicate data to Hosted Metrics, allowing you to try it without switching over.

  • How do you price? By server?

    We think server-based pricing is suboptimal with the advent of microservices, containers, and serverless computing. Instead, we charge based on a unit of monitoring (the MetricTon). Each MT can handle 18,000 DPM (datapoints per minute) and 3,000 unique series; enough for 20+ “normal” servers.

  • Why can’t I buy a smaller plan?

    We just launched Hosted Metrics, and are initially focused on large scale users. We plan to launch a generous free tier soon, along with more entry level plans.

  • Can you import my historical data?

    Absolutely. We can import all your historical data from Whisper format at no additional charge. This service is included in all plans.

  • What about custom metrics?

    Since we don’t charge per server, there is no additional charge for custom metrics. A metric is a metric as far as GrafanaCloud is concerned. There are no limits or special charges for custom metrics.

  • How do you deal with usage bursts?

    We guarantee that you can burst to 200% of your current usage, and we don’t penalize you for unexpected overages. We disregard the most bursty 36 hours every month, so temporary bursts are not a problem.
