Reviewing Your Drawdown Billing Usage

If your organization uses a cloud-managed drawdown subscription, you can view your usage in the PubSub+ Cloud Console. Drawdown billing allows your organization to purchase a number of PubSub+ Capacity Units (PCUs) that you consume over time.

Each product and service in PubSub+ Cloud has an annualized PCU cost. PCUs are consumed based on hours of usage at a rate of 1/8760th of the PCU cost for the service. For example:

  • If one event broker service has a PCU cost of 200 and it is used 24 hours per day in the month of April, its PCU consumption for the month would be calculated as: 200 X 24 [hours per day] X 30 [days in April] / 8760 [hours per year] = 16.45 PCUs.

To view your organization's PCU usage:

  1. Log in to the PubSub+ Cloud Console if you have not done so yet. The URL to access the Cloud Console differs based on your authentication scheme. For more information, see Logging In to the PubSub+ Cloud Console.

  2. Click User & Account  and select Account Details.
  3. On the Account Details page, select the Drawdown Usage tab.
  4. Select a date range to view your PCU consumption for the period.

If your organization has multiple PubSub+ Cloud accounts, this report is only for a single account.

You can view usage for dates on or after February 1, 2023.

You can also use the PubSub+ Cloud v2 REST API to get your drawdown usage. For more information, see the Billing v2 REST API.
