Metered billing in rngo is based upon simulation volume. At the end of each billing period, usage equals the aggregate volume of all simulations run within that period.

Simulation Volume

A simulation's volume is the sum of each stream's volume, which is calculated by taking the product of:

  1. stream length - the maximum number of events that the stream could produce given the simulation specs.
  2. schema width - the number of bytes required to store the largest value described by the stream's schema.

The volume is this number rounded up to the next megabyte.

Schema Width

A schema's width is the number of bytes required to store the largest value described by the schema.

Null

A null schema's width is 1.

Boolean

A boolean schema's width is 1.

Integer

An integer schema's width is large enough to fit it's upper bound. For example, the following schema has width 3:

type: integer
maximum: 65600

The width must also accommodate the lower bound - this schema also has width 3:

type: integer
minimum: -65600
maximum: 128

Upper and lower bounds may also be derived from the exclusiveMinimum, exclusiveMaximum, enum and const keywords, along with from rngo value expressions.

If no bounds are specified, we use a default minimum of -2147483648 and a maximum of 2147483647, so the following schema has a width of 4:

type: integer

Number

A number schema's values are represented as integers, with the 4 least significant digits representing the fractional part. So the following schema has a width of 3:

type: number
minimum: 0
maximum: 32

This is because the largest possible value is represented as 320000, which requires 3 bytes. This schema has width of 4 to accomodate the integer 20458900:

type: number
minimum: -2045.89
maximum: 32

String

A string schema's width is the length of the longest possible string multiplied by 4, so this schema has a width of 80:

type: string
maxLength: 20

If a string has an enum (or a const), the width will be the item with the most bytes. For example, this schema has length 5:

type: string
enum:
  - one
  - two
  - three

The width may also be derived from the pattern and format keywords, along with from rngo value expressions.

If no keywords are specified, we use a default maxLength value of 64, meaning ther following schema has a width of 256:

type: string

Array

An array schema's width is the maximum length of the array times the size of its items. So the following schema has a width of 5:

type: array
items:
  type: integer
  minimum: 0
  maximum: 128
maxItems: 5

If maxItems is not specified, we use a default value of 64

Object

An object schema's width is the sum of the width of its values. This schema has a width of 19:

type: object
properties:
  id:
    type: integer
    mimum: 0
    maximum: 512
  name:
    type: string
    maxLength: 4
  admin:
    type: boolean

Widths are calculated recursively, so the following schema has a width of 127:

type: object
properties:
  id:
    type: integer
  posts:
    type: array
    items:
      type: object
      properties:
        title:
          type: string
          maxLength: 10
        published:
          type: boolean
    maxItems: 3
