Insights subscription usage UI

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

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

View Insights 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 Insights subscription usage data:

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

Calculation details

The Insights subscription usage UI displays only paid Insights events, meaning events that count towards a paid Insights subscription. It does not display events that are included free as part of other New Relic product subscriptions (but you can query included events).

How long specific types of events are stored in Insights depends on each event type's retention period. For a list of the Insights event types, see Namespaces. For more on data retention rules, see Insights data retention.

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

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 selected at the top of the page.
