Harness provides preloaded By Harness (pre-defined) and Custom (user-defined) Dashboards to visualize cloud cost data across clusters and cloud accounts. Using the AWS EC2 Instance Metrics Dashboard you can:

  • Discover new analytical insights into your AWS EC2 instances metrics
  • Track various cloud cost indicators across different zones and time range
  • 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 AWS EC2 Instance Metrics Dashboard and get more information about that data.
