Enter the service level objective (%) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Error Budget. 

Error Budget Formula

EB = (1 - SLO/100) *100


  • EB is the Error Budget (%)
  • SLO is the service level objective (%)

To calculate Error Budget, subtract the service level objective from 1, then multiply by 100.

How to Calculate Error Budget?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Error Budget.

  1. First, determine the service level objective (%). 
  2. Next, gather the formula from above = EB = (1 – SLO/100) *100.
  3. Finally, calculate the Error Budget.
  4. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
