Manage InfluxDB Cloud billing

Upgrade to Usage-Based Plan

  1. Click Upgrade Now in the top right corner of the InfluxDB Cloud user interface (UI).
  2. Review the terms and pricing associated with the Usage-Based Plan.
  3. Click Sounds Good To Me.

The address is used to determine any applicable sales tax.
  5. Enter your payment information and click Add Card.
  6. Review the plan details, contact information, and credit card information.
  7. Click Confirm & Order.

Add your payment method and view billing information in the InfluxDB Cloud user interface (UI).

View Free Plan information

On the Billing page, view the total limits available for the Free Plan.

Exceeded rate limits

If you exceed your plan’s rate limits, InfluxDB Cloud provides a notification in the InfluxDB Cloud user interface (UI) and adds a rate limit event to your Usage page for review.

All rate-limited requests are rejected; including both read and write requests. Rate-limited requests are not queued.

To remove rate limits, upgrade to a Usage-based Plan.

Rate-limited HTTP response code

When a request exceeds your plan’s rate limit, the InfluxDB API returns the following response:

HTTP 429 “Too Many Requests”
Retry-After: xxx (seconds to wait before retrying the request)

Billing cycle

Billing occurs on the first day of the month for the previous month. For example, if you start the Usage-based Plan on September 15, you’re billed on October 1 for your usage from September 15-30.
