How are Credits Charged for Warehouses?

Credit Billing:

Computed based on:
-Warehouse size (credits per hour per cluster)
-Number of clusters (multi-cluster only)
-Running time of individual cluster resources
Example: X-Small (1 credit/hour/cluster), 4X-Large (128 credits/hour/cluster).

Billing Notes:

-Minimum: 1 minute for initial resource provisioning.
-Stopping: No benefit before 60 seconds (initial charge already incurred).
-Per-second: After 60 seconds, billing increments by the second.
-Restarting: Credits accumulate across restarts under 60 seconds.
-Resizing: Increases billing proportionally while additional resources run.

5XL/6XL → 4XL or smaller: Brief overlap billing while old warehouse shuts down.

Credit Display:

Shown in hourly increments, but reflects fractional usage due to per-second billing.
