# Check Account Quota and Balance¶

This page explains how to retrieve accounting information for users logged-in via the Command Line Interface, including information about any Organizational Accounts that the user may be member of.

Each of the commands outlined in what follows can accept keyword parameters as option flags, as listed by passing the --help flag to them.

## Account Balance¶

Information about the Account Balance (in US dollars) is accessed using the balance command, as demonstrated in the example below.

# > balance

 1 2 3 Id Name Amount Reserved Balance CreditLimit Available -- -------- ------ -------- ------- ----------- --------- 1 steven 1000.00 10.00 990.00 0.00 990.00 

The entries returned by the above command are summarized in the table below, complementing their general discussion. We remind the reader that in order to perform computations on our platform, a positive balance is required.

Entry Description
Amount Total combined amount of money
Reserved Money already allocated for executing Jobs
Available Remaining money not allocated yet
Credit Limit Not applicable in our case
Balance Same as Available, due to absence of credits

## Itemized Account Statement¶

We track the usage of our platform, or balance spent on computations per each account and each project. The usage statistics of each cluster, in terms of number of CPU hours consumed and charges incurred, is referred to as the Account Statement.

This statement can be inspected with the statement command under CLI, as demonstrated in the example below.

# > statement -s 2018-01-01 -e 2019-01-21

It is often convenient to pass the -s (start) and -e (end) flags to the statement command, to narrow down the window of time over which the statement is printed. These flags should contain information about the delimiting dates, in the format "YYYY-MM-DD". So, for example, the command statement -s 2019-01-01 -e 2019-01-08 would return the account statement starting from the 1st to the 8th of January 2019.
