Common Questions, Answered.

.

For how long can I use the Realtime Communication Platform Free Plan?

As long as you stay within the limits of the Free Plan (1 million Transactions or Functions Executions, and 1 GB of message storage per calendar month), you can use it for as long as you need to. It is intended for testing and development purposes – once your application reaches production, you will need to upgrade to a paid account. The number of Transactions, Functions Executions, and Storage reset at the beginning of each calendar month.

.

What are the Realtime Communication Platform transactions? How are they measured?

Transactions are API requests that are made to the PubNub network. When you make an API call to PubNub, we count that as a transaction.

Each transaction can consist of up to a 2048 byte payload. Since payloads up to 32KB are supported, larger transactions are counted as multiple transactions, where the payload is divided into 2048 bytes buckets.

Transactions may be designated as either replicated, edge, message action, or signal. Learn more about our transaction classification.
