Billing of Databricks Job clusters

Hi All,

Please help me understand how the billing is calculated for using the Job cluster.
Document says they are charged hourly basis, so if my job ran for 1hr 30mins then will be charged for the 30mins based on the hourly rate or it will be charged for the 2 hours rate making it a round figure. Thanks

Job clusters consume DBUs per hour depending on the VM size. The Databricks billing happens at "per second granularity", see here. That means if you run your job for 1.5 hours, you will be charged DBUs/hour*1.5*SKU_price; accordingly, if you run your job for 1.32 hours, you will be billed DBUs/hour*1.32*SKU_price.
