Step 2 Foundation

Create Meters

Measurements are handled differently depending on the associated meter definition. The most significant distinction is the relation to time, which is the reason for the two meter types: counters and gauges.

Gauge Metering

A fluctuating value (i.e., can increase and decrease over time). With gauges, the time between measurements is as important as the measurements themselves. Often times, it is the integral (i.e., area under the curve) that represents true usage.

Example: Number of active users, storage provisioned, number of running job.

Counter Metering

A monotonically increasing value (i.e., expected only to increase over time).

Example: API requests, files uploaded, inbound/outbound network traffic, function invocations.

Step 3 Setup

Register Customers

Register your customers with a single line of code.

Step 4 Customize

Assign Price Plans

Subscribe customers to a price plan. Through subscriptions you can customize a customer's billing cycle, price plan components, discounts.

Step 4 Measure

Send Usage Measurements

Send measurements corresponding to the meter from anywhere using Octane's REST API directly or client SDKs..

Step 4 Test

Monitor Data

After you create meters and start streaming data to Octane, you can view usage along the customer dimension.

I have my own Stripe account, can I still use you?
How do I integrate my slack account to Octane?
Do you have any product usage limitations?
How granular is the revenue calculation for my usage data?
