Use the AWS Cost report to analyze cost data found in your AWS Cost & Usage Report across all of your consolidated or linked AWS accounts. This report provides a breakdown of your costs for EC2, RDS, and S3 resources. The AWS Cost report is generated daily after initial setup.
This report is an ideal place to start your right sizing planning because it allows you to quickly understand your infrastructure spend on an operational level, such as identifying an over-reliance on On-Demand resources used for predictable, long-term workloads (more suited for reservations and savings plans) or those that might be less critical and time sensitive (more suited for Spot instances).
Policy names are prefixed with AWS RDS –
Policy name Duration Condition 1 (and) Condition 2 (and) Condition 3 Cat. Description Elevated RDS CPU Activity (Normal Network Activity) 30 min netuitive.aws.rds.cpuutilization has an upper baseline deviation + an upper contextual deviation + a static threshold > 20 netuitive.aws.rds.networkreceivethroughput does not have an upper baseline deviation + does not have a upper contextual deviation netuitive.
Cost reports enable you to easily identify expensive instances and compare them against utilization, type, elements, and tags. These multi-dimensional reports also break down information like total versus individual instance costs and even how much each instance state (Reserved, On-Demand) costs. Custom tagging is another easy way to group your instances.
Cost Reports are generated once per week. It may take up to 7 days before your first report is available.
About Right Sizing Right Sizing is the practice of finding the perfect balance between cost efficiency and stability for each of your resources. CloudWisdom provides several tools that help you understand the current performance of your workloads and their true needs—both now and in the future.
