I am trying to learn charged operation in Algolia, so I get an email from Algolia like the image below, I only have one index called prod_EVENTS.
as you can see, in the last few days, there are 4 searches (which is very accurate).
but when I open monitoring section on the dashboard, it is counted as 12 search operations (7 multi queries and 5 single queries). it seems to me that I have to pay for 12 search operations like the image below:
I am using Android as the frontend, and I am using algoliasearch. after the user write the keyword on the search bar and tap enter, then it performs search using the method below in Android:
I am using this gradle:
on last few days, like the image from my email above, I try to type “indo” on search bar of my Android apps (3 times) and hit enter key. and then I also type “nxndnd jdndd” once on search bar and press enter. so the method above is triggered 4 times in the last few days, I assume I only perform 4 search operation
but I don’t understand why 4 searches will be counted as 12 search operations like that ? I expect it will only charged as 4 operations. I don’t need the exact number, but I am confused where that single and multi queries numbers comes from ? especially the multi queries, since I think I only have one index and search through that only index. i have tried to find guide or doc about single and multi queries in Algolia, but I can’t find it
do I get charged for 4 operations or 12 search operations ? so how to count single and multiple queries ? and do I have to pay for 12 search operations or just 4 ?
really need your information, because it will relate to cost of my app operation. Thanks in advance
