What is a metric?
A metric constitutes a single, raw data stream collected from a server or pushed to our API. For example, an AWS EC2 instance includes metrics like CPU Utilization, disk read/write, or network in/out. Grok creates individual models for every raw metric stream consumed by the platform for analysis.
How much does Grok cost for x number of metrics?
To compute your cost for Grok cloud, here's a pricing calculator you can use after you have determined the number of metrics you wish to monitor with our platform:

What is an integration?
Grok enables you to take action on any anomalous activity using integrations, which are hooks into other tools your business uses everyday. Grok includes pre-built, turn-key integrations to popular developer tools like ServiceNow or New Relic. You can also write custom integrations to act on anomaly data. For example, you may leverage Grok to restart a sensor in an IoT cloud or send an email campaign to customers with abnormal buying behaviors. Check out this page for detailed use cases.
What is a source?
A source provides raw data streams to Grok for anomaly analysis. Grok provides tools to connect to sources of data, such as cloud metric collectors like AWS CloudWatch or a .csv reader. Most cloud based data stores can provide information to Grok using our REST API, which creates a custom source for Grok analysis.
What determines the metric count used in a billing period?
Grok will charge you based on the maximum number of metrics reporting anomalous activity in a given billing period (i.e. monthly for Grok Cloud).
