CAT is pay-as-you-go mode based on the number of tests and unit price. You can estimate your costs based on the following.
The billing details of the Free edition are as described below:
|Test task||You can create up to five tasks.|
|Location type||You can select IDC or LastMile.|
|Test frequency||You can set it to up to five minutes.|
|Testing node||You can select up to six testing nodes for a task.|
You can upgrade to the Pro edition if you need more than five test tasks, a higher test frequency, or more testing nodes.
The billing details of the Pro edition are as described below:
|Node Type||Unit Price (USD)|
Suppose an advanced test task is performed every five minutes for two IDC testing nodes in the Chinese mainland. If it lasts 31 days in May, the duration will be 44,640 minutes = 31 (days) * 24 (hours) * 60 (minutes).
The Pro edition will be charged [2 * (44,640 / 5 )] * 0.0048 ≈ 85.70 USD.
Make sure that your account has a sufficient balance; otherwise, test tasks cannot run properly after two hours if your account has overdue payments.
