View AWS Resource Breakdown Dashboard

Updated 6 months ago by Archana Singh

Dashboards are a collection of charts and data tables with filters that you can use to get at the data you're interested in. Dashboards serve as a platform for data modeling and analytics using a combination of available business metrics and operational data. You can use this data to make data-driven informed business decisions.

Harness provides pre-loaded By Harness (pre-defined) and Custom (user-defined) Dashboards to visualize cloud cost data across clusters and cloud accounts. Using the AWS Resource Breakdown Dashboard you can:

  • Discover new analytical insights into your AWS Services
  • Track various cloud cost indicators across different zones and time range
  • View instance metrics
  • Explore the cloud cost data in a logical and structured manner
  • View your cloud costs at a glance, understand what is costing the most, and analyze cost trends
This Dashboard will not be available if you have not selected AWS Resource Breakdown Dashboard feature when setting up CCM for AWS.

This topic describes how to view the By Harness AWS Resource Breakdown Dashboard and get more information about that data.
