Usage Measurement Template

New Feature Announcement
Paigo has introduced native Azure Usage Measurement support! See detailed documentation from Virtual Machine Compute Time on Azure (Measurement Template)and Managed Disk on Azure (Measurement Template)

Overview

Usage measurement templates are predefined sets of configurations of measurements and dimensions for commonly used SaaS product usage. For example, compute time is a commonly defined product metric by many infrastructure SaaS business. Paigo has several templates for compute time measurement and dimension configurations. See below table for the supported usage measurement templates.

Measurement Properties and Predefined Values

Following properties are measurement properties and their values predefined for the templates:
  • Measurement Frequency The frequency that Paigo measures the usage as the atomic usage data.
  • Precision The precision of atomic usage data Paigo measures.
Once a measurement is used to populate usage data for a dimension, the dimension configuration is automatically decided based on the configuration of measurement. For example, if the measurement is measuring the compute time, then the dimension unit can only be time-based unit such as Hour. Any other value such as gigabyte will be rejected as invalid.
The Following properties are dimension properties and their values predefined for the templates.
  • Unit
  • Aggregation Method
  • Aggregation Interval
  • Usage Increment
  • Rounding
See Model Pricing Plans for information on these properties.
