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 Synthetics.
For an introduction to New Relic usage data and how to use it, see Intro to usage data.
View Synthetics 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 Synthetics subscription usage data:
- From synthetics.newrelic.com, select the account dropdown, and then select Account settings.
- Select Usage.
- Select Synthetics usage.
A New Relic Synthetics subscription level is based on the number of non-ping monitor checks used during a calendar month.
The Synthetics usage chart displays the daily count of monitor checks. The table value Avg daily paid checks displays the total number of monitor checks for the selected time period, divided by the number of days.
If your monitor checks are fairly steady over time, you can estimate the current month's eventual usage:
- On the Synthetics usage page, set the time picker to Last 30 days.
- Multiply the Avg daily paid checks by the number of days in the current month.
