Usage Metrics

Depending on your account, there are several different billing metrics you might see:

  • Measurement Events: The total number of rows uploaded into File-Based Recognition audiences.

  • Measurement Sources: The total number of File-Based Recognition audiences that you have uploaded data to that month.

  • Destinations: The total number of destination platforms that you have actively-distributing destination accounts for in that month (excluding Data Marketplace destination accounts).

  • Onboarding LiveRamp Units: Sometimes referred to as “Activation Units”. The total number of unique records you have set up to distribute to each destination in that month. See “LiveRamp Units” for more information.

    Note

    For LiveRamp Units, records are deduplicated (by audience key) across all of the audiences in the account.

  • Measurement LiveRamp Units: Sometimes referred to as “Activation Units”. The number of rows uploaded to File-Based Recognition audiences, multiplied by the number of destinations to which they were sent. See “LiveRamp Units” for more information.

  • Records Under Management (RUM): The average number of complete, deduplicated records you have in LiveRamp audiences that month. “Complete” means that the record contains both identifier data and segment data. See “Records Under Management” for more information.

    Note

    For some RUM customers, each different input identifier category incurs a different usage rate, according to contract terms. These input identifier categories differ, depending on whether the audience is an Onboarding workflow audience or a File-Based Recognition (FBR) workflow audience. See "Records Under Management" for more information.

    Caution

    For Records Under Management, records are only deduplicated within each audience. They are not deduplicated across different audiences.

  • Active Records Under Management (Active RUM): The average number of unique records you have in LiveRamp that month that are configured for distribution. Unique records contain both identifier data and segment data.

Note

The count of unique records is the number of unique audience members across all active files in a specific audience. Unique records have been de-duped (if John Doe is in your file more than once, we only count him as one record) by means of the audience key used for that audience.

See "How Connect Counts Unique Records" for more information.
