hi all,

i have some troubles about calculating the API unit usage with
BulkMutateJob.

for example, i made a job in order to create 173 AdGroup( request id :
dbf501ef2459ff12b77226f083c09582). when i want to get the result,
requestId: e16a2758ca7ef50af4cb54411ebcfa92
i have :
<numOperations>4</numOperations>
<numUnits>4</numUnits>

why only 4 units? if i use your rate-sheet here :
http://code.google.com/intl/fr/apis/adwords/v2009/docs/ratesheet.html#rates

i should have (173*1)0.5= 86.5, not 4

another example, i created 1494 Ad -text and 1438 Keyword
i get the bulk result, requestID 2c46cada4741b637b3010fda47af9cc8, i
have :
<numOperations>59</numOperations>
<numUnits>832</numUnits>
i should have (1494 * 40) *0.5 + (1438*15)*0.5= 40665 Unit

how is really calculate the bulk cost? i have to estimate the cost so
could you explain me how to calculate the real cost in API unit
please.

thanks a lot

Hi,

Thank you for brining this problem to our attention. I'll forward
this information on to the core engineering team and let you know when
I have more information.
