Your APM SaaS free trial will be automatically enabled for IBM Website Monitoring
IBM Website Monitoring costs $22 per 10,000 measurements + cost of 1 APM license i.e., $175 per month
Here is a form that will help you determine the cost based on how many measurements you need -
A measurement corresponds to the unique execution of each step of your synthetic scripts. For example, let's say you have five scripts. Four of those scripts are simple page loads with validation. Each of those scripts are counted as a single step. One script is for a more complex business process which consists of six steps. If you specify these five scripts to be run at an interval of 15 minutes, the number of measurements would be calculated as: (4 scripts x 1 step) + (1 script x 6 steps) x (60 / 15 *24*31) = 29,760 measurements per month.
Note, you will need at least one license of APM SaaS. This license is used to provision and provide ownership for your APM Server. Once you have your APM SaaS server, you can record and playback as many scripts as you would like, keeping in mind that the cost is calculated based on the number of measurements as previously described.
During the free trial you can view reports and statistics on your usage in the APM UI and determine how much you need to purchase.
You will be billed after completion of a month of usage. If you use more, you will get an overage bill that you can pay for.
