Your organization's pricing edition (Standard, Pro, or Enterprise) determines how many synthetic monitor checks are included for free per month.
A synthetic monitoring check is an individual execution of a synthetic monitor. When a monitor runs from one location, it counts as one check, so you can also think of synthetics check as a synthetics job, or a job execution.
For example, if a monitor is configured to run once per hour from 5 locations, then that comes out to
24 * 5 checks per day, totaling 120 checks. Your organization's pricing edition determines your check limits and you can view and facet the number of checks that have been executed.
Your organization's pricing edition (Standard, Pro, or Enterprise) determines how many synthetic monitor checks are included per month. These limits apply to all monitor types except the simple ping monitor.
