ShareGate Overcast uses the combination of the Usage and RateCard APIs to gain insights on your cloud spending during the month.
Prices are calculated through the Price Sheet associated with Subscriptions.
The app sums up all of the accumulated units of the meters associated with the Subscription resources.
Costs are amortized. For example, if you buy a Reservation for ten thousand dollars, you won't see the ten thousand dollar purchase, but rather the amortized cost on all your virtual machines.
Note: When unable to retrieve your RateCards, ShareGate Overcast will fall back to PAYG Rates.
ShareGate Overcast crawls for this information at 4:00AM Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) every night. Depending on your timezone, this might affect the costs assignation of the current day.
