Answer

If Cloud Volumes ONTAP deployed with Pay-as-you-go loses communication with Cloud Manager, Cloud Volumes ONTAP logs will show that license is going to expire, and there is a four day grace period.
The following EMS events can be used to monitor and notify:

     Message Name: license.subscription.reminder
         Severity: NOTICE
      Description: This message occurs when your Cloud ONTAP(R) license subscription is going to expire soon.
Corrective Action: Contact your sales representative to renew your subscription as soon as possible.
   SNMP Trap Type: Severity-based
    Is Deprecated: false

     Message Name: license.subscription.warning
         Severity: ALERT
      Description: This message occurs when your Cloud ONTAP(R) license subscription is nearly expired.
Corrective Action: Contact your sales representative to renew your subscription immediately, to avoid any disruption.
   SNMP Trap Type: Severity-based
    Is Deprecated: false

     Message Name: license.subscription.enforcement
         Severity: EMERGENCY
      Description: This message occurs when your Cloud ONTAP(R) license subscription has expired but may still be renewed.
Corrective Action: Contact your sales representative to have your subscription reactivated.
   SNMP Trap Type: Severity-based
    Is Deprecated: false

Additional Information

Cloud Volumes ONTAP systems will shut down after losing communication with Cloud Manager for longer than 14 days.
This behavior is only relevant to Pay-as-you-go but not for BYOL(Bring your own license).
