Pricing for concurrent monitoring

We’re changing our user interface. Some info may not yet be up to date. Please check From classic to new UI.

Pricing for Real Browser Check (RBC), Full Page Check (FPC) and transaction monitors

The price is calculated following the credit system, where different types of monitors have different base prices, expressed in credits. So in general the calculation is:

Price = the monitor base price x the number of checkpoints included in the check

Comparison example

In the following table you find an example of how the pricing works, compared between concurrent and standard monitoring.

Concurrent monitoringStandard monitoring
Transaction (cost of 4 credits), user-defined to run on 3 checkpoints
4 credits x 3 = 12 credits
Transaction (cost of 4 credits)
4 credits x 1 = 4 credits

Pricing for basic monitors and Multi-step API (MSA) monitors

For these monitors tiered pricing with a scaling factor applies, therefore the price is calculated differently than the price for Real Browser Checks, Full Page Checks and transaction monitors. The basic monitors include Ping, Http(s), SSL certificate, etc. monitors. Also, keep in mind that for an MSA monitor the pricing depends on the number of steps. See the price formulas below.

Basic monitor

Price = the monitor base price x the scaling factor from the tiered pricing table below

MSA monitor

Price = the number of steps in the MSA monitor x the scaling factor from the tiered pricing table below

Tiered pricing table

Number of checkpointsScaling factor
1 to 2N/A (see note below table)
3 to 42
5 to 73
8 to 104
11 to 145
15 to 186
19 to 227
23 to 268
27 to 309
31 to 3510
36 to 4011
41 to 4512
46 to 5013
Note: You have to choose a minimum of three (high availability) or five (out of all) checkpoints to use concurrent monitoring. For standard monitoring you also have to choose a minimum of three checkpoints, but only one will be used at a time (and included in the price calculation).

Comparison examples

In the following tables you find examples of how the pricing works, compared between concurrent and standard monitoring and also for different levels in tiered pricing.

Basic monitor

Concurrent monitoring (tiered pricing)Standard monitoring
HTTPS monitor (base price of 1), user-defined to run on 4 checkpoints
1 credit x 2 (scaling factor) = 2 credits
HTTPS monitor (base price of 1)
1 credit x 1 = 1 credit
HTTPS monitor (base price of 1), user-defined to run on 10 checkpoints
1 credit x 4 (scaling factor) = 4 credits
HTTPS monitor (base price of 1)
1 credit x 1 = 1 credit

Multi-step API monitor

Concurrent monitoring (tiered pricing)Standard monitoring
MSA monitor with 10 steps, user-defined to run on 4 checkpoints
10 credits (number of steps) x 2 (scaling factor) = 20 credits
MSA monitor with 10 steps (base price of 10)
10 credits (number of steps) x 1 = 10 credits
MSA monitor with 10 steps, user-defined to run on 10 checkpoints
10 credits (number of steps) x 4 (scaling factor) = 40 credits
MSA monitor with 10 steps (base price of 10)
10 credits (number of steps) x 1 = 10 credits
Note: In general you should keep in mind that a monitor type with a high base price (credits per monitor) will lead to high credit use, when including many checkpoints.
