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 into 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.
