What is a GiB hour?
A GiB hour is a unit of measure representing the cost to monitor, analyze, or protect a 1-GiB memory host for 1 hour. A host with 16 GiB of memory that is monitored for 3 hours will consume 48 GiB hours (16 GiB memory x 3 h = 48 GiB hours).
What is a host hour?
A host hour is a unit of measure representing the cost to monitor a host for one hour (regardless of the amount of host memory).
If these capabilities are used for a fraction of an hour, Dynatrace usage is rounded up to the nearest 15 minutes for consumption calculations (for example, 1 minute of usage is billed as 15 minutes).
How is monitoring consumption calculated when capabilities are used for less than an hour?
When Dynatrace capabilities are used for a fraction of an hour, we round up to the nearest 15 minutes for billing purposes (for example, one minute of usage is billed as 15 minutes; an hour and three minutes of usage is billed as 1.25 hours). This billing model is intended to be advantageous in cloud-native environments where hosts and services are rapidly spun up and destroyed.
How is monitoring consumption calculated for hosts with a fractional amount of memory?
When Dynatrace capabilities are used on a host with a fractional amount of memory, memory is rounded up to the nearest quarter GiB for consumption-calculation purposes.
When Full-Stack Monitoring is enabled on a host with less than 4 GiB of memory, memory is rounded up to 4 GiB for consumption calculations (except for Application-Only Mode, where the minimum size is 0.25 GiB).
Does Full-Stack Monitoring cost more if a server hosts many JVMs, microservices, or containers?
No, the pricing for Full-Stack Monitoring is based on the amount of memory monitored over the time period. We don’t vary Full-Stack Monitoring pricing based on the technologies running on the host.
Does Full-Stack Monitoring include all the features of Infrastructure Monitoring?
Yes, the price of Full-Stack Monitoring includes all Infrastructure Monitoring capabilities, for example, Network Performance Monitoring.
Can Application Security capabilities be deployed on a standalone basis?
Runtime Vulnerability Analytics requires that the host be monitored by Dynatrace (either in Full-Stack or Infrastructure Monitoring mode).
Runtime Application Protection is based on code-level insights and requires Runtime Vulnerability Analytics.
Are the prices on this rate card available with Classic Dynatrace Licensing?
No, these prices and units of measure are only available with a Dynatrace Platform Subscription.
