Data ingest: Billing and rules

For New Relic pricing, the data ingested by your New Relic organization is one billing factor.

Learn about costs

If you're not yet a New Relic customer and are curious about costs, first see our main pricing page. If you're an existing customer, keep reading to learn details about data ingest billing.

View data ingest in the UI

For how to find usage and billing information in the UI, see Billing UI.

For how to view and manage your data ingest, see Manage ingest.

Data options: Data Plus and original

Your organization's price per GB of ingested data varies depending on which data option your organization has: Data Plus or our Original Data option. The Data Plus option offers advanced data capabilities for optimized performance, scale, security, and governance. A New Relic organization can have only one option at a time.

Here's a table with comparisons of the two options. Prices and limits are monthly, and prices are in USD.

With the Azure Native New Relic Service, you can collect and store your telemetry data for apps and infrastructure directly in Azure. This feature is included with Data Plus, but with these limitations:

  • FedRAMP Moderate/HIPAA eligibility not available
  • Historical data export not available

Upgrade to Data Plus

To upgrade to Data Plus, go to the Data retention UI in the data management hub and click Upgrade retention.

  • Note: You may see an Edit data retention button, but that is different that the Upgrade retention button.
  • To see the Upgrade retention button, you need to have Billing permissions. If you meet the requirements and still don't see the Upgrade retention option, talk to your New Relic account representative.

What counts as billable ingested data?

In the context of the New Relic pricing plan, "ingested data" refers to the data saved to New Relic by your organization after we apply various data trimming and data transformation rules. In other words, it's not the amount of raw data sent to New Relic, but the size of the data that actually ends up being stored.

In general, data that we generate to provide our features doesn't count towards your ingest. Examples of features and feature-related data that don't count towards ingest include:

To understand your usage, see the usage UI.

Other calculation details

  • In the context of our pricing model, a GB is defined as 1 billion bytes.
  • Monthly data ingested is rounded down to the nearest integer. For example, if your organization uses 100.9 GBs during a month, that's counted as 100 GBs.
