Insights subscription usage

Original pricing plan

Important

This doc is for accounts on our original Product-based pricing. If you're on the newer pricing plan, see New Relic One pricing plan. Not sure which you're on? See Overview of pricing plans.

For accounts on our original pricing plan, this document explains:

Data generation

Once per day, an account with an Insights Pro subscription will generate an NrDailyUsage event for every event namespace. A NrDailyUsage event includes a count of the events under that namespace.

To view the attributes for this event, see the NrDailyUsage entry in the data dictionary.

Usage calculations

Tip

Only the account Owner and Admins can view the usage UI. However, anyone in your account can query usage data using the NrDailyUsage event.

To get an estimate of the current month's billable usage:

  1. Go to: account dropdown > Account settings > Usage.
  2. On the Insights usage page, set the time picker to Current month.

For more information about the usage UI, see Introduction to subscription usage data.

The Insights usage UI only displays paid events: these are events that count towards an Insights Pro subscription. It does not display events that are included free as part of other New Relic product subscriptions. However, you can also query the product included events.

How long specific events are retained will depend on each event type's data retention period. For a list of the applicable event types, see Event namespaces.

Table definitions

Here are definitions of the column headers displayed in the UI table and CSV files. The columns you see depend on the Group by option you select in the UI.

Header

Definition

Account name

The name of the account. This can be a standalone account, a master account, or a partnership.

Account ID

New Relic account ID.

Event namespace

The category of event governed by Insights subscription. For example: APM or Mobile error. For more information, see the list of event namespaces.

Stored paid events

The number of events stored that count towards an Insights Pro subscription. Events included as part of other New Relic product subscriptions are not counted.

% of total usage

The percentage of the total usage used.

Event namespaces (types)

An Insights Pro subscription governs the data retention of certain types of events. An event's namespace (indicated by the insightsEventNamespace attribute) corresponds to one or more event types that share a single data retention policy.

Query examples

To get the most out of your Insights usage data, you can:

  • Run queries of this data and create custom charts and dashboards.
  • Use this data programmatically, using one of our APIs.

For general information about how to use NRQL queries, see Introduction to usage data.

Tip

Insights writes usage events once per day. That is why these queries use since 24 hours ago or timeseries 1 day.

Here are some NRQL query examples about usage.
