This page shows you how to monitor the overall usage and costs for your Pinecone organization as well as usage and performance metrics for individual indexes.

Monitor organization-level usage

You must be the organization owner to view usage across your Pinecone organization. Also, this feature is available only to organizations on the Standard or Enterprise plans.

To view usage and costs for your Pinecone organization, go to Settings > Usage in the Pinecone console.

All dates are given in UTC to match billing invoices.

Monitor index-level usage

To view usage and performance metrics for an index:

  1. Open the Pinecone console.
  2. Select the project containing the index you want to monitor.
  3. Select the index.
  4. Go to the Metrics tab.

Monitor operation-level usage

Read operations like query and fetch return a usage parameter with the read unit consumption of each call that is made. For example, a simple query to an example index might return this result and summary of read unit usage:

from pinecone.grpc import PineconeGRPC as Pinecone

pc = Pinecone(api_key="YOUR_API_KEY")
index = pc.Index("pinecone-index")

index.query(
  vector=[0.3, 0.3, 0.3, 0.3, 0.3, 0.3, 0.3, 0.3],
  top_k=3,
  include_values=True
)
# Returns:
# {
#     "matches": [
#         {
#             "id": "C",
#             "score": -1.76717265e-07,
#             "values": [0.3, 0.3, 0.3, 0.3, 0.3, 0.3, 0.3, 0.3],
#         },
#         {
#             "id": "B",
#             "score": 0.080000028,
#             "values": [0.2, 0.2, 0.2, 0.2, 0.2, 0.2, 0.2, 0.2],
#         },
#         {
#             "id": "D",
#             "score": 0.0800001323,
#             "values": [0.4, 0.4, 0.4, 0.4, 0.4, 0.4, 0.4, 0.4],
#         },
#     ],
#     "namespace": "",
#     "usage": {"read_units": 5}
# }
