The article provides a quick tour of where you can view actual and estimated costs for computing, storage, and egress in your Terra workspace. This is helpful if you want to perform an action that you know has a cloud cost, but you aren't sure how much. If you don't have permission to view the breakdown of costs in your Google bill, this article will help you understand the rate at which you are accruing expenses. 

Compute Costs

Running workflows 

See your workflow costs (actual cost) on the Job History page of your workspace. Follow these instructions for enabling Terra's built-in cost reporting to see the total Run Cost populate in your workspace. 


Running Cloud Environments

When you start up a Cloud Environment, you are shown an estimated cost right away. When you adjust the settings, you will see the estimates change. There is an hourly cost for running the environment, a small cost for keeping the environment paused, and a monthly cost for any persistent disk used. 


Storage Costs

Your workspace dashboard shows an estimated monthly storage cost for the files located in your workspace bucket. Remember that any failed or successful workflows will produce intermediate files and those files are stored in your workspace bucket. 


Egress Costs

Your data tables are stored on the Data page of your workspace. If you click on a file element in a data table, a modal window will appear. It will display the file's metadata and a button describing the estimated cost for download (egress).
