Infrastructure subscription usage UI

For account owners and admins, New Relic provides a UI for understanding your subscription-related usage of New Relic products. This document explains how to view and understand the usage UI for New Relic Infrastructure.

For an introduction to New Relic usage data and how to use it, see Introduction to usage data.

View Infrastructure usage

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

To view your Infrastructure subscription usage data:

  1. From, select the account dropdown, and then select Account settings.
  2. Select Usage.
  3. Select Infrastructure usage.

Calculation details

Monthly billable CUs for a host are calculated by: the size of the host running Infrastructure (number of CPUs + GBs of RAM) multiplied by the number of hours the host is connected to New Relic during that month. For more on how this is calculated, see CU-based pricing.

If your usage is fairly steady over time, you can estimate usage for the current month:

  1. On the Infrastructure usage page, set the time picker to Last 30 days.
  2. Multiply the Avg daily compute units by the number of days in the current month.

For a description of general usage UI features, see UI features.
