USM Anywhere™

The Projected Data Consumption Field

Role Availability Read-Only Analyst Manager

USM Anywhere displays the Projected Data Consumption field through the My Subscription page. This field shows both the amount of data already stored for the month and the calculated data storage needs for the rest of the month.

The Total Event Data chart displays the data collected during the current period. When you click View Data Consumption by Data Source, a chart displays to show the breakdown of how much data is being used by each data source. Click the Export to CSV button beneath the Data Consumption by Data Source chart to create a CSV file detailing all of the data consumption in a spreadsheet.

Projected Data Consumption field on the My Subscription page

The Projected Data Consumption field is calculated using the following formula:

averageMonthlyConsumption = (currentMonthDataConsumed / totalDaysInTheCurrentMonthCollected) * daysLeftForCurrentMonth

Where:

  • currentMonthDataConsumption = total data consumed in current month.
  • totalDaysOfDataConsumption = the number of days passed in the current month (includes days with no recorded data).
  • activeDays = total days in the month.

For example, in a 30-day month, at the end of the 15th day, the instance has received 10TB of data, so the Projected Data Consumption field is calculated using the following formula:

projectedMonthlyConsumption = (10TB / 15) * 30
