Quantify your CUD optimization

The CUD optimization widget offers three key performance indicators (KPIs) to help you get the biggest benefits from your commitments. The first KPI, “Last month’s realized CUD savings”, helps you measure how much money you’re saving with CUDs across all eligible Google Cloud services used by your billing account. “Optimization rate for Your billing account” analyzes your total product usage over the past month to determine if you have opportunities to optimize your spending further through CUDs. Finally, the peer benchmark helps you get perspective into your overall performance.
