Introduction

Users can now view all their usage metrics within the Akto dashboard. This feature also allows us to show limits as per Akto plans on the pricing page.

Why should you measure and view usage?

Measuring usage gives a comprehensive overview of your use of Akto’s features and allows for a better allocation of your resources!

Here’s how it helps:

  1. Tracking Usage and Performance: Monitor the number of tests conducted, the endpoints tested, and any limitations or thresholds set by the platform.

  2. Optimizing for the Plan that suits your team: By viewing your usage, you can assess whether you are effectively utilizing the allocated resources within your current plan or choose a different one. Check out Akto’s plans here.

This data allows you to select a plan in accordance with your requirements. Here’s how you can do it on Akto.
