Monitoring Instance Usage with Apps Manager

Page last updated:

This topic describes how to retrieve app, task, and service instance usage information using Apps Manager.

You can also retrieve app, task, and service instance usage information using the Usage service API, or the Cloud Foundry API from the Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface (cf CLI). For more information, see the Monitoring App, Task, and Service Instance Usage topic.

There are two ways to monitor app, task, and service instance usage from Apps Manager. The Accounting Report provides a summarized report, and the Usage Report provides a more detailed view of the data.

The Accounting Report displays instance usage information for all orgs in your Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) deployment except the system org. The Accounting Report provides a high-level overview of your usage by displaying your monthly count of app, task, and service instances.

Follow the steps below to access the Accounting Report.

  1. Log into the Apps Manager as an admin.

  2. From the left navigation of Apps Manager, select Accounting Report.
