Billing for TraceView can be based on either host count or RAM utilization. Host count is simple: hosts are defined as instances of an operating system, or containers running instrumented code. This typically includes app servers, workers, API servers, service tiers, but not databases, queues, or caches. The difference with RAM utilization is that instead of counting hosts, the amount of RAM available to each host is counted. For example, instead of four 1 GB instances counting as four hosts over the course of a month, they would count as 4 GB-months, the equivalent of one 4 GB instance. TraceView customers may monitor both production and staging/dev hosts, but regardless of plan, you are charged for production hosts only. A production host is one that’s assigned to an app that meets any of the following conditions: it is not tagged as ‘staging’; it exceeds 5,000 requests per day; it is accessible via the public internet.
