This Howto explains how to check the number of systems and the datapoints which have been used in the current month, in order to anticipate the bill at the end of the month.
First, go to the Dashboard tab to display the summary level view of your fleet consumption. There are two widgets to help us: the Current consumption and the Historical consumption.
This widget allows you to verify the number of activated systems and their total Datapoint consumption for the current month.
These widgets on the main (level 1 customer) dashboard show the total systems and received Datapoints from all the subaccounts including the mother company’s. The sub-accounts tab shows the breakdown for systems and Datapoints for each sub-account.
These 2 widgets allow you to track trends in system activations and data consumption:
This combined information helps you analyse your consumption. For example:
This will allow you to anticipate the next bill, and/or to identify anomalies for a system or a set of systems, so that you can rapidly react to optimize Datapoint consumption.
If you have enabled the Sub-accounts option, the Account Management application provides extra tools to help you analyze consumption and any related issues. See How to manage sub-accounts.
