IPU metrics

If your organization has the Intelligent Cloud Data Management feature, your license is based on Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services usage.
IPUs are units of credit used to pre-pay for using Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services scalars such as compute units and events processed. You can monitor your IPU balance and usage on the Metering page.
The Metering page show IPU information in a dashboard. The Current IPU Usage area shows the number of IPUs entitled to the organization, the number of IPUs consumed, the number of IPUs remaining, and an estimate of the days remaining before the IPU balance is depleted, baesd on the current consumption rate.The Current Billing Period to Date area shows a table with IPU scalars and associated meters. It shows the rate per IPU, the previous usage, previous IPUs consumed, current usage, and current IPUs consumed.
