Monitoring Account-level Credit and Storage Usage

If you have the necessary administrator privileges, you can use the Snowflake web interface to view details about the number of warehouse credits and the amount of data storage your account uses on a monthly and daily basis.

Usage information for your account is displayed in the Billing & Usage page available from the Account page in the Snowflake web interface. The Account page is only displayed to users with the necessary administrator privileges.

Viewing Credit Usage for Warehouses

The credit usage view of the Billing & Usage page displays credit usage for all warehouses that have been resumed (and therefore charged credits) in a given month. Warehouses that have not been resumed in the month are not included in the view.

Virtual Warehouse Credit Usage view

In this view, you can:

  • Select the month for which you wish to view credit usage.
  • Click the name of a warehouse (or corresponding pie slice) to view daily credit usage for the selected warehouse.
  • With no warehouse selected, click a day of the month to view a breakdown of credit usage by warehouse for the selected day.
  • Use the Download button to output the information displayed on this page to a tab-delimited text file.

Viewing Data Storage Usage

The storage usage view of the Billing & Usage page displays the total amount of storage (in bytes) utilized by all your Snowflake databases for your account for the month, including:

  • Storage for data in database tables (including deleted/modified data maintained for Time Travel purposes).
  • Storage for data files in internal staging locations (used for loading/unloading data in Snowflake).
  • Storage for historical data maintained in Fail-safe.

The view displays the average total storage used for the month, as well as the daily total storage.

Data Storage Usage view

In this view, you can:

  • Select the month for which you wish to view storage usage.
  • Click the filters on the top to display the storage usage by type of storage.
  • Use the Download button to output the information displayed on this page to a tab-delimited text file.

The storage units (MB, GB, TB, etc.) change dynamically depending on the amount of data stored.

Note

The view only displays data storage information starting from May 1, 2015. Data storage information for previous months is not available.
