How much does Assistants API Retrieval Pricing costs?

Hello, it is unclear to me what happens if I upload a file with e.g. 100,000 words for specialist knowledge. What exactly do I have to pay for? Also for reading the tokens that correspond to the 100,000 words?

You will have to pay $0.20 per day per gigabyte of stored information or part thereof, plus the API token count used by the retrieval system as context.

Let’s say that you don’t attach any functions, code interpreter, and ask in a new thread. Minimize the autonomy that the agent backend has to iterate on you. The API documentation basically gives a promise that the model context will be filled with retrieval (and no max_token to set).

How about 100k+ tokens of context loaded up for gpt-4-turbo = $1.00? Your 100000 words = around 150k tokens to be embedded and chunked back into the model context.

You’ll only get a delayed daily report of the tokens used in total for the day - by design, I’m sure, with the obfuscated billing usage coming out in concert with assistants.

I’m rather upset at the fact that they removed the daily breakdown.

It would be extremely helpful to see what I used and when I used it. Instead we get an aesthetically pleasing but functionally useless line graph.
