The INFORMATION_SCHEMA.CAPACITY_COMMITMENTS view contains a near real-time list of all current capacity commitments within the administration project. Each row represents a single, current capacity commitment. A current capacity commitment is either pending or active and has not been deleted. For more information about reservation, see Commitments.

|    my_commitment_05    |    1000    |
|    my_commitment_06    |    1000    |
|    my_commitment_07    |    1500    |
