Ixia CloudLens Sensors are loaded onto Source Instances (i.e. Cloud servers running workload traffic to be monitored), as well as Tool Instances (i.e. Tools receiving the data). Instances may have one or more interfaces that require monitoring (e.g. eth0).
There are two components to CloudLens pricing;
- Interface hours are applied towards each hour CloudLens sensor operates in monitoring the interface/s of the instance it is running on. As the number of interface hours of operation scale up the cost per interface hour of operation goes down.
- Bandwidth charges based on total Gigabytes / Terabytes of packet data transferred by the CloudLens sensors between source instances and tool instances. Charge per Gigabyte reduces as the amount of data transferred increases.
