Product integration into Cockpit

The following table provides details about the products that are integrated into Cockpit. This means that you can have metrics and/or logs and/or alerts in your Cockpit for the products mentioned below. This also means that if products are not integrated into Cockpit, the resources’ metrics and logs are not free of charge.

Refer to our documentation on understanding Cockpit usage and pricing for more information on how to reduce extra costs.

Important:
  • Having the default configuration on your agents might lead to more of your resources’ metrics being sent, a high consumption and a high bill at the end of the month.
  • Sending metrics and logs for Scaleway resources or personal data using an external path is a billable feature. In addition, any data that you push yourself is billed, even if you send data from Scaleway products. Refer to the product pricing for more information.
