AWS provides a number of RI-specific cost management solutions out-of-the-box to help you better understand and manage your RIs. Using the RI Utilization and Coverage reports available in AWS Cost Explorer, you can visualize your RI data at an aggregate level or inspect a particular RI subscription. To access the most detailed RI information available, you can leverage the AWS Cost & Usage Report. You can also set a custom RI utilization target via AWS Budgets and receive alerts when your utilization drops below the threshold you define.
The Reserved Instance Utilization and Coverage reports are available out-of-the-box in AWS Cost Explorer. Using these reports, you can set custom RI utilization and coverage targets, and visualize how well you are tracking towards your goals. From there, you can refine the underlying data using the available filtering dimensions (e.g., account, instance type, scope, and others).One of the core benefits of the AWS Cost & Usage Report is the wealth of RI-related data that is made available to you. The AWS Cost & Usage Report can be customized to collect cost and usage data at the daily and monthly levels of detail, and is updated at least once per day. If desired, the AWS Cost & Usage Report can even be ingested directly into Amazon QuickSight or your Amazon Redshift cluster.
The RI Utilization report allows you to visualize your RI utilization , to identify and act upon opportunities to increase your RI usage efficiency (e.g., by modifying RI types or shifting workloads to match the constraints of active RIs).
