Currently, Tencent Cloud SMS alarm channel has quota limit. The quota system consists of a free quota and an additional quota that you purchase.
When the monthly free SMS quota is used up, the system will send you an alarm notification, which will no longer be sent through the SMS channel for the rest of the month, but the email channel is not affected.
You can purchase an additional SMS quota if the free quota does not meet your needs.
|Free Quota||A certain amount of free SMS quota is available, allowing you to receive alarm notifications through the SMS channel|
|Additional Quota||You can purchase an additional SMS quota if the free quota does not meet your needs|
|Alarm Type||Free Quota||Free Quota Granting Logic|
|Basic Alarm||1,000 messages/month||The free quota is reset to 1,000 on the first day of each month, regardless of the remaining quota in the previous month|
|Cloud automated testing alarm||1,000 messages/month||The free quota is reset to 1,000 on the first day of each month, regardless of the remaining quota in the previous month|
|Custom message alarm||1,000 messages/month||The free quota is reset to 1,000 on the first day of each month, regardless of the remaining quota in the previous month|
|Custom monitoring alarm||1,000 messages/month|
Additional quotas for different alarm types are calculated separately, so you need to purchase separate quotas for basic alarms, cloud automated testing alarms, custom message alarms, and custom monitoring alarms.
Currently, additional quotas are not available for custom message alarms or custom monitoring alarms.
|Additional quota to be purchased||Additional quota price|
|< 100 messages||0.055|
|≥ 100 messages and < 500 messages||0.052|
|≥ 500 messages and < 1,000 messages||0.050|
|≥ 1,000 messages||0.045|
- Deduction rule: When sending alarm messages, the system uses the free quota first, and then the additional quota if free quota is used up.
- Quota validity: An alarm quota is permanently valid. You can use a purchased quota at any time.
Log in to Cloud Monitoring Console. On the Monitoring Overview page, you can view the SMS utilization. Click Purchase SMS to purchase an additional SMS quota.
Assume that you are using the repeated alarm notification feature, a recipient group of 10 recipients is configured for a certain alarm, and the alarm is configured to be sent repeatedly every hour. If the alarm lasts for 24 hours, 240 messages (10 x 24) will be deducted from the SMS quota. Note that repeated alarm notification increases SMS quota consumption.
