Applicable to: Cloudways Autonomous only.

Your Cloudways plan has a fixed amount of applications, monthly visits, disk space, and bandwidth you can monitor using the Cloudways Platform. To increase your plan resources, you will need to upgrade your plan. However, if you exceed your monthly allowance for visits, disk space, and bandwidth, the overages will be billed in your next invoice. Please note that your applications will not suffer any downtime or failures due to excessive usage of resources.

In this article, we will show how you can monitor your specific application resources and overall plan resources.


How to Monitor Your Application Resources

Log in to your Cloudways Platform using your email address and password.

  1. Select My Applications, located under the Managed Platform.

  2. Next, select your desired application.

  3. Under the Overview tab, scroll down to the Resources section, and you will notice the following information:

    Total Visits

    Monthly visits refer to the number of visits your site gets from unique IP addresses. Here, you will notice the total number of visits your application has gotten so far since the start of the month.

    Total Disk Space

    Here, you will notice the disk space that your application currently occupies in your Cloudways plan. An application consists of a database and web application files, which your disk stores.

    Bandwidth

    This section shows the total bandwidth consumption by your application since the start of the month. You can also filter the statistics using the start and end dates.

How to Monitor Your Plan Resources

Log in to your Cloudways Platform using your email address and password.

  1. Select Plan Overview, located under the Managed Platform.

  2. Under Dashboard, you will notice the following:

    Total Installed Applications

    Here, you can check how many applications are running under your plan and the total number of applications allowed on your plan. If you want to install more applications than the allowed applications, you can simply upgrade your plan.

    Total Visits

    Monthly visits refer to the number of visits your site gets from unique IP addresses. Here, you will notice the total number of visits that all of your applications have gotten so far since the start of the month.

    Bandwidth

    This section shows the total bandwidth consumption by all your applications since the start of the month.

    Total Disk Space

    Here, you will notice the disk space all your applications currently occupy in your Cloudways plan. An application consists of a database and web application files, which your disk stores.

  3. Under Resource Analysis, you will notice a detailed analysis of your resource consumption graphically.

CloudwaysBot Notifications

CloudwaysBot will send you notifications via email when you are close to exhausting your plan resources. It will first notify you when the threshold reaches 80%, then at 90%, and finally when it reaches 100%. The notifications will be sent to your Cloudways-registered email address.

FAQs

When do plan resources refresh?

The plan resources reset on the first day of every calendar month as determined by the server time in the UTC timezone.

What happens if I exceed my plan resources?

Your Cloudways plan has a fixed number of applications, monthly visits, disk space, and bandwidth. To increase your plan resources, you will need to upgrade your plan. However, if you exceed your monthly allowance for visits, disk space, and bandwidth, the overages will be billed in your next invoice. Please note that your applications will not suffer any downtime or failures due to excessive usage of resources.

What if I don't want to pay the overages?

You can monitor your application and plan resources proactively and upgrade the plan when you are close to reaching the threshold.
