    Project/account usages

    On DatoCMS usage quotas are tracked per account or per project. Let's see what are them, what are the differences between them, and where you can monitor them.

    Per-account resources

    Each account has quotas that are shared between all their projects. In particular the shared resources are:

    • records

    • file storage

    • API calls

    • bandwidth

    • video encoding

    • video streaming

    These resources can be monitored from your dashboard, in the plan details.

    They look like this:

    As you can see, in a single place you can monitor how your resources are used between the different projects, so you can better understand which ones you should optimise, or which of your clients should be billed more for their usage.

    Per-site resources

    In each project you can drill down the traffic, the API calls and the video streamed:

    And you can change the reports, from this dropdown:

    In order to better understand where the traffic is coming from and how best to optimise the use of resources in your project.
