FAQ・Handling of host conversion when plan limits are exceeded

In addition to the previous section, here we will explain how host conversion will be done in response to plan overages of each type of item. All decimal points will be rounded up.

  • Host metrics
    • overage ÷ plan limit (200 for Standard plans)
    • calculation will be done in regard to all hosts exceeding the limit
    • hosts' host metrics will be calculated with the equation below
      • Standard metrics + custom metrics + check monitors
  • Service metrics
    • overage ÷ plan limit (200 for Standard plans)
  • External monitors
    • overage ÷ plan limit (20 for Standard plans)

Examples using the Standard plan

The Standard plan has multiple limits, for host metrics it's 200, for service metrics 200, and for external monitors the limit is 20.

Below are 2 example possible use cases.

Pattern A usage overage host conversion
Host A metrics 180 0 0
Host B metrics 180 0 0
Host C metrics 180 0 0
Service metrics 90 0 0
External monitors 19 0 0

In this case there are three hosts, A, B, and C, and no overages, so total hosts will be counted as 3.

Pattern B usage overage host conversion
Host A metrics 401 201 2
Host B metrics 180 0 0
Host C metrics 180 0 0
Service metrics 240 40 1
External monitors 30 10 1

In this case we have 3 hosts, plus 4 hosts converted from overages, making a total of 7 hosts.
