Amazon resource optimization

Amazon Resource Optimization allows you to track Amazon resource usage through the Amazon CloudWatch API.

Resource Optimization allows you to generate reports that help you to better manage or utilize resources. The reports list under-utilized, stranded, or unattached resources. You can configure rules to schedule when to generate a report. To use the resource optimization feature, Amazon resources must already be discovered and imported into the instance. Use the Amazon Web Services account record form to perform Discovery.

The application supports optimization of the following resources:

  • VMs
  • Elastic Block Store (EBS)
  • Elastic Load Balancing (ELB)
Note: There is a potential charge to use this feature.
