View InfluxDB Cloud data usage

To view your InfluxDB Cloud data usage, click the user avatar in the top right corner of your InfluxDB Cloud user interface (UI) and select Usage.

Find data usage information for the time frame specified in the drop-down at the top of the Usage page.

  • Data In: Total data in MB written to your InfluxDB Cloud instance.
  • Storage: Total disk usage in gigabytes.
  • Query Count: Total number of individual query operations, which include queries, tasks (alerts, notifications) and Data Explorer activity.
  • Data Out: Total data in MB sent as responses to queries from your InfluxDB Cloud instance.
  • Usage over the specified time period: A line graph that visualizes usage over the specified time period.
  • Rate Limits over the specified time period: A list of rate limit events over the specified time period.

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. InfluxDB Cloud plans include the following rate limits:

  • If write or read requests exceed the specified limit within a five-minute window, InfluxDB retries the request after that five-minute interval. The UI displays event_type_limited_query or event_type_limited_write as fields.
  • If the series cardinality exceeds the limit, requests are rejected and not queued. The UI displays event_type_limited_cardinality as a field.

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

InfluxDB API: HTTP rate limit responses

The InfluxDB API returns the following responses:

  • When a read or write request exceeds your plan’s limit:

    HTTP 429 “Too Many Requests”
    Retry-After: xxx (seconds to wait before retrying the request)
    
  • When series cardinality exceeds your plan’s limit:

    HTTP 503 “Series cardinality exceeds your plan's limit”
