The billing of a DB system starts at the end of the Creating state, and is billed during the Active, Updating, and Deleting state.

Stopping a DB system stops billing for all shapes associated with it. However, billing continues for storage (See Backup Billing). Billing for shapes resumes if you restart the DB system.

If you delete a DB system, the billing stops at the end of the Deleting state. You are not billed when the DB system is in the Inactive, Deleted, or Failed state.


The shape and storage are metered on the compartment level per region for the tenancy.
