Will there be public available Grafana-Dashboards to see how much the services of the Enterprise-API are used. I think that it is interesting to understand the amount of data that is transferred through the API-Services.

Dear @Hogü-456 - the short answer is that there will not be such a product yet, but that we hope to provide a simplified equivalent to that in the future.

One key factor is that the usage data would need to be 'aggregated' across all the customers/users - to suitably anonymise the individual uses - and therefore we would need to have some statistically significant number of customers. Equally, I mention 'simplified' as the Wikimedia grafana dashboard is extremely detailed and specialised. I don't want to over-promise what might be technically or legally possible to do with publishing commercial client's data (as I'm neither a lawyer, not a network engineer!) Finally, as we're building this from scratch, the public dashboard concept is interesting but not critical infrastructure that is technologically required in order for us to launch. I actually think that such a tool would be useful both for general curiosity/transparency and also as a marketing tool: to show potential future customers the scale of the service already in operation! So, not an immediate technical priority but something we should be investigating in the medium term.

I hope this answers your question.
