What forms of payment do we accept?

Is your free plan really free?

Yes. No credit card or other information is required.

Is there a prepayment discount?

Yes, we can offer a 5% discount for prepayment. Just reach out to our sales team to get started.

Do we offer Discounts for Nonprofits, Academic Institutions, and Startup spaces?

We provide both a Free SaaS (up to 500 metrics) and a Startup package (up to 1000 metrics) for a nominal cost. We are open to creative partnerships that would provide mutual benefit.

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. Circonus charges for active metrics. When metrics are marked as inactive, we stop collecting new data but the historical data remains accessible.

What happens if I use up all of my metrics?

Our system prevents costly overages by preventing you from exceeding your quota. Should you need more metrics, you can always upgrade your account.
