This page lists the frequently asked questions about the Keymetrics pricing system and the specificities of our plan limitations.
A ‘process’ represents a system process, put simply each entry in
pm2 list is a process.
It can be a worker in a cluster, a app in fork mode or a module.
When you use the cluster mode (with
pm2 start -i) each instance will be counted as a process.
If you start 3 instances of the same application they will all count towards your process plan limit.
Yes, you need PM2 v2.6.0+
You can then use the command
pm2 unmonitor [APP_NAME|ID] to stop monitoring a process via Keymetrics.
pm2 ls you should see a red dot indicating the application will not be followed by Keymetrics.
If you want to monitor the process again use
pm2 monitor [APP_NAME|ID].
A ‘server’ represents one linked PM2 instance. Normally, each bare metal server/container/VM have one PM2 instance.
For some specific plans you have a limited number of reporting avalaible for a certain period. This is listed in the plan specifications. After your notifications are used you will receive a mail warning you that you will receive no more mails until the next reset.
For example the Garage plan lets you have 10 total notifications per day, and resets every day.
The counter resets every day at midnight at GMT+1.
When you upgrade the notification counter will be reset.
When you downgrade the notification counter will not be reset to prevent abuse.
