Kinsta charges for Database Hosting based on the size and runtime of your database. With Database Analytics, you can get insights into your database’s usage data. To access these in-depth reports, go to your database’s Analytics page.
The analytics page shows you the storage and runtime for your database as well as the CPU and memory usage.
You can choose to see data for the past 24 hours, 7 days, 30 days, or the current billing cycle (Current month in the dropdown menu).
The storage chart shows you the data stored in the database for the time period selected.
The runtime report shows the total time the database has been running after being built and deployed, with its associated database resource type (database size).
The CPU usage chart shows the average of the total CPU utilization for the selected time period, expressed as a percentage of the instance’s CPU resources. If you see a high percentage of CPU usage (near 100%), we recommend a larger database type with more available CPU. You can change the size in your Database Settings (Database Settings > Basic details) if you need a larger database.
The memory usage chart shows the average of the total memory (RAM) used for the selected time period. If a database is using most or all of the memory available, we recommend a larger database type with more available memory. You can change the size in your Database Settings (Database Settings > Basic details) if you need a larger database.
Analytics data is retained for 30 days. We suggest checking your Database Analytics frequently after first creating your Database at Kinsta and periodically thereafter. If you see any unexplained analytics data or inconsistency that concerns you, let our Support team know, and we can further investigate to help determine the cause.
