- What is the frequency at which usage metrics are calculated?
Usage metrics are calculated on an hourly basis.
- Am I charged if my VM is powered off?
Charges for provisioned storage always apply regardless of VM power state. You will not be charged for vCPU or vRAM consumption if the VM is powered off under the pay-as-you go billing model.

This occurs when one or more VMs run for a partial period during the month.
