Save money by automatically putting your non-critical apps to sleep Starting at $2/mo.
Having numerous staging and preview dynos running 24/7 can rack up costs at the end of the month, but chances are you only need a few running at a time. That’s why we made AutoIdle: to automatically turn off unnecessary apps and save you money.
When an app is inactive for 30 minutes, AutoIdle puts it to sleep. If the app later receives an HTTP request, the add-on automatically reactivates the app with the same dyno count and active processes present before the app went to sleep.
Simply click “Install” to add AutoIdle to your app. That’s it! AutoIdle will then immediately put your inactive apps to sleep after 30 minutes of inactivity. No additional configuration needed.
“AutoIdle is one of those great little apps that you activate and then just forget about it. It literally saves you a ton of money and lets you stop wasting resources.” - Michael Koper, Nusii
“I noticed AutoIdle on twitter and it was immediately obvious to me that was what I was looking for to save money on unused Heroku staging apps. AutoIdle is amazing add-on solving a real problem in a simple way without additional configuration, just install it. I highly recommend it!” - Artur Trzop, Knapsack Pro
Our customers use apps that idle, on average, 92% of the time. For the following examples, we will use a conservative 90%.
