View AWS EC2 Inventory Cost Dashboard

Updated 3 weeks 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 EC2 Inventory Cost Dashboard you can:

  • Discover new analytical insights into your AWS EC2 instances
  • 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 ECS and Resource Inventory Management feature when setting up CCM for AWS.

This topic describes how to view the By Harness AWS EC2 Inventory Cost Dashboard and get more information about that data.
