It is no surprise that monitoring workloads are top of mind for many organizations to ensure a successful customer experience.

Workload Pricing and SVCs: What You Can See and Control

The Cloud Monitoring Console (CMC) lets Splunk Cloud Platform administrators view information about the status of a Splunk Cloud Platform deployment. For workload pricing, the CMC lets you monitor usage and stay within your subscription entitlement. From the CMC you can see both ingest and SVC usage information and can gain insight into how your Splunk Cloud Platform deployment is performing.


What is Splunk Virtual Compute (SVC)?

With Splunk workload pricing, you now have ultimate flexibility and control over your data and cost.
