Flexsave billing data

You can further break down the savings by Project/Account name, Service, SKU, or other dimensions.
Flexsave adds 3-year CUDs to your Google Cloud Billing account to cover your workloads and delivers the equivalent savings of 1-year CUDs. When processing Google Cloud billing data, Flexsave adds custom line items to make adjustments for the 3-year to 1-year conversion:
Line items without the
doitintl-cud-sourcelabel (see DoiT system label) are from Google Cloud raw billing data.
Line items with the
doitintl-cud-sourcelabel are added by Flexsave to negate the 3-year CUDs purchased by DoiT and put in the corresponding 1-year CUDs.
CUDs purchased by customers are not affected.
In the example below, the line items of the 3-year CUD balance out, which means, the 3-year CUD is purchased by DoiT. If there are customer-purchased CUDs, the value of the line item without the
doitintl-cud-source label will be greater than its counterpart with the label.
