View Usage Graphs

You can view a chart indicating how much data and how many API requests have been consumed, and how many message units were received.

  • Each message unit contains 100 KB of data.

    Message units are counted by the number of encoded characters in a message.

  • Every API call (via the connector or API) to Anypoint MQ counts as one API request.

    All requests to the broker API, such as sending, receiving, and acknowledging messages, and all operations on queues and exchanges, are counted against the quota.

  • Up to 10 messages can be retrieved from a single API call, which only bills as one request.

    Even if the request to retrieve messages does not return a message (for example, if the queue is empty), it bills as a single API request.

  • If a message sent to the DLQ is a dead letter from another queue, the message is not charged against the billable API requests.

    However, if a client sends a message directly to a DLQ, that message is charged.

  • Monthly billing usage information is delayed by 24 hours.

If your usage exceeds your license limit, Anypoint MQ continues to work. MuleSoft notifies your account administrator and team with any billing-related information.
