The AWS Instance Analyzer Default dashboard is filtered to show the cost from all Amazon Web Services (AWS) instances such as EC2 Compute Instances, Spot Instances, and Reserved Instances on one page.
To use the AWS Instance Analyzer Default dashboard, make the following selections:
Select a date period for your cost reporting (Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly, Biannually, or one of the “Shortcuts”) using the Date Selector.
Select the Cost amortization and Cost blending method.
In the Activity Chart (line graph), select the appropriate spend dimension to graph such as billing center, cloud vendor account, or resource types. Depending on your organization’s AWS spend, you may further filter a particular dimension such as by selecting a specific geographic region or a specific AWS service. Based on the dimensions you selected, your total cost for your desired date period appears in the top right corner as Total Cost for Period. For further clarification regarding the dimensions used in the Activity Chart, see Amazon Web Services (AWS) Bill-based Data Dimensions.
The Resource List provides a spreadsheet view of your AWS instance spend with the ability to drill down to a specific virtual machine. On the right side, click Columns to select the categories to include in the Resource List. Then click Filters to further refine your selected categories. Filters can be sorted ascending or descending using the up or down arrow next to the column’s category name. Columns in the Resource List can be dragged to your preferred order, and the column width can be expanded to show the entire category title. If you prefer to create a pivot table view, select Functions and select the appropriate filters, row groups, values, and column labels. For further clarification regarding the Columns, Filters, and Functions options in the Resource List, see Amazon Web Services (AWS) Bill-based Data Dimensions. Once you have your Resource List set to your desired preferences, you can export this list by clicking Export CSV.
The full list of your individual cloud resources can be a very large dataset and may exceed the capacity of the interface. In terms of date range, only the most recent 90 days are shown. If you see a “Not all resources shown” message in the upper right of the Resource List, the interface and any CSV exports have reached their capacity of displaying only the first 100,000 rows. The remaining rows will not display. Shorten your date range to a narrower window to avoid seeing this message.
Note:If the Resource List has hit the capacity limit and is displaying the “Not all resources shown” message, applying filters within the Resource List will only further filter down the truncated dataset of 100,000 rows. The “Not all resources shown” message will continue to display. The only way to reduce the dataset in this dashboard is by using the date selector.
