Pricing Update for IBM Cloud Monitoring with Sysdig

1 min read

Effective March 1, 2020, the IBM Cloud Monitoring with Sysdig service will have updated pricing to support platform monitoring which will be generally available worldwide.

IBM Cloud Monitoring with Sysdig provides metrics and workflows for monitoring IBM services available in the IBM Cloud Catalog. With this change, the monitoring service will now have an updated pricing plan.

New prices

Beginning March 1, 2020, there will be a base price of $35 per node for up to 1,000 time series and 50 containers per node (not including host, container, kube-state metrics) for infrastructure monitoring.

For platform-specific metrics, tiered usage-based pricing will be in effect for each time series across all nodes and services (beyond the 1,000 budget per node).

Automatic consumption billing includes the following tiers:

  • Tier 1: $0.08: Up to 100K time series
  • Tier 2: $0.05: 100K–1M time series
  • Tier 3: $0.03: 1M–10M time series
  • Tier 4: $0.02: >10M time series

There will be a $5 charge per additional 10 containers across all nodes (beyond the 50). Across all nodes and services, customers will have the first 1M API calls free and be charged $0.01 per 1,000 API calls beyond that. Only metric data fetching API calls are counted in the pricing.

The new pricing update for IBM Cloud Monitoring with Sysdig will take effect on March 1, 2020. If you have questions or concerns, please contact
