Be on top of your GPU usage and costs with our new billing alarm feature! Easily define a threshold value (in USD) and receive email notifications once you’ve reached the set amount. This helps you to keep track of your costs to train or accelerate your workload. And the best thing is: setting the billing alarm is free!
How to set up a billing alarm?
Accessibility is one of our key values and was the main requirement for this feature. All you have to do is:
navigate to your Account on the GC console and select Billing
at the top you will find a box called “Billing Alarm”
click on “Add alarm” and set the Billing threshold slider to active
define the threshold value (in USD) in the set box
click on “Save”
to edit or view the set amount, click on “Edit alarm”
Please note that the billing alarm is only an informational tool and will not automatically stop your instance once you’ve reached a certain threshold value.
A big thank you to our GC community – as we received this feature request from many of you. Keep sending us feedback and requests via this channel (Feature Requests Genesis Cloud), and feel free to vote certain features up. Of course, there is more to come in the near future!
Keep accelerating 🚀
