LET’S GET YOU STARTED WITH IRONdb
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS A METRIC?
Any data which can be indexed in time order is a metric. CPU utilization (numeric), software version (text), or page load time for millions of simultaneous users (histogram), are common examples. IRONdb is licensed based on the number of “active metrics,” which means we only count the number of metrics which have been updated in the previous five minutes.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I HAVE AN UNEXPECTED BURST OF DATA?
We know that the occasional burst of data will likely happen, usually when you least expect it. IRONdb is configured to still accept data over your licensed amount at a pre-determined overage rate.
WHAT ARE MY DEPLOYMENT OPTIONS?
IRONdb is typically deployed as a self-hosted software solution, but we know that each customer’s needs are different. That is why we are happy to host IRONdb for you. Flexibility to your unique metrics needs is something we take pride in.
IS YOUR FREE PLAN REALLY FREE?
No credit card or other information is required to use our free plan.
IS THERE A PREPAYMENT DISCOUNT?
Yes, we can offer a 5% discount for prepayment. Additional discounts may apply. Reach out to sales to see all discounts available.
