Account Overview

The Account page contains metrics and charts to help you manage your account costs in terms of ingest, storage, dashboards and alerts, and metrics. Green or black text indicates your usage numbers are within expectation and not likely to incur charges. Red text indicates that your numbers are above expectation and you may need to increase your current limits to avoid on-demand usage.

Here's all the information that this page provides on your account:

  • Organization. Displays the name of your Sumo Logic organization, and its hexadecimal organization ID number. This helps Sumo identify your account.
  • Plan Type. Displays your account type for your Sumo Logic subscription such as Professional or Enterprise edition and whether you are billed on the Cloud Flex or Classic Plan.
  • Current Billing Period. Displays the start and end date of the current billing period.
  • Daily Log Ingest. Measure of your current ingest. If the Daily Ingest average over the billing cycle is above your  capacity, you will be charged the on-demand rate for the difference.
  • Total Storage. Measure of your current storage consumed. You can adjust capacity use by modifying your retention rates.
  • Live Dashboard Panels and Real Time Alerts. Compares the number allowed to the number already in use. For example, out of 200, 198 have been used.
  • Metrics. Measure of your metrics use by Data Points per Minute (DPM). If your Daily Usage average is higher than your capacity, you will be charged the on-demand rate for the difference.

Total Storage

Use this graph to understand your current storage use and compare it to your expected usage. If your usage is in green, you are within expected usage levels. If your usage is in red, you are over your expected storage use. You can upgrade or reduce your storage capacity by clicking the editing the retention period of your indexes link.

  • The dotted line displays the account storage limit.
  • A green line indicates that you are within your account limit for account storage.
  • A red line indicates that you are over your account limit for storage.
