About this task

AWS Billing offers a set of billing reports on your AWS usage based on hourly usage. You can view charts of the data on the Cost reports page. The report details list tags associated with the resources. You can categorize VMs by tagging the instances.
Note: To receive the reports, you must have an Amazon S3 bucket available in your AWS account.
Reports:
  • Product operation type - Costs broken down by the operation type that was run in the AWS account
  • Total cost by resource - Total costs incurred by each AWS resource in the account
  • Total cost by product name - Total costs incurred by each AWS product
  • Total cost by linked account - Total costs incurred by each linked AWS account
