Example

Usage for cloud services is billed only if the daily consumption of cloud services exceeds 10% of the daily usage of virtual warehouses. This query returns how much of cloud services consumption was actually billed for a particular day, ordered by the highest billed amount.

SELECT
    usage_date,
    credits_used_cloud_services,
    credits_adjustment_cloud_services,
    credits_used_cloud_services + credits_adjustment_cloud_services AS billed_cloud_services
FROM snowflake.account_usage.metering_daily_history
WHERE usage_date >= DATEADD(month,-1,CURRENT_TIMESTAMP())
    AND credits_used_cloud_services > 0
ORDER BY 4 DESC;
