Usage Statistics

Overview

On-premises dbt Cloud deployments send high-level dbt Cloud metadata for an installation back to Fishtown Analytics. Fishtown Analytics uses this information to record license utilization and better assist in supporting on-premises deployments of dbt Cloud.

Usage statistics are tracked once weekly, and include the following information:

  • The account ids and account names present in a deployment
  • The number of developer and read only licenses utilized in each account
  • The version of dbt Cloud installed in the on-premises environment

This information is sent as a JSON payload to usage.getdbt.com. A typical payload looks like:

{
"accounts": [
"id": 1,
"name": "Fishtown Analytics",
"develolper_licenses": 20,
"read_only_licenses": 50,
"dbt_cloud_version": "1.0.0"
]
}
