Analyze Cost for GCP ​Using Perspectives

Updated 2 weeks ago by Archana Singh

Harness Cloud Cost Management (CCM) allows you to view your Google Cloud Platform (GCP) costs, understand what is costing the most, and analyze cost trends. CE displays data for all your GCP products (such as Compute Engine, Cloud Storage, BigQuery, and so on), projects, SKUs, location, and labels and also provides details on:

  • GCP cloud cost spending trends
  • The GCP products costing the most in a selected time range. For example, how much Compute Engine cost last week
  • Primary cost contributors, such as product, project, SKUs, or region
  • GCP spendings by region, such as us-west1 or us-east4
