As discussed earlier, reserved instances (RIs) are one of the best cost optimization practices. AWS EC2 RI purchase status needs to be checked to ensure cost optimization.
To avail the maximum benefits from reserved instances in the form of billing discounts, it is necessary to make sure that all your EC2 reservation purchases have been processed by AWS. If payment status is pending or if the payment is not successful, then the user will be unable to get the optimization through reserved instances.
How to check your AWS EC2 RI purchase status with Centilytics?
Centilytics provides an insight especially for your purchase status corresponding to your AWS EC2 reserved instances (RIs) so that users can take note of the same and take necessary actions accordingly.
There can be 3 possible scenarios:
|WARNING||This indication will be displayed when payment of your Amazon EC2 reserved instance is pending.|
|OK||This indication will be displayed when payment of your EC2 reserved instance is processed successfully.|
|CRITICAL||This indication will be displayed when payment of your AWS EC2 RI gets failed.|
Description of further columns are as follows:
- Account Id: This column shows the respective account ID of the user’s account.
- Account Name: This column shows the corresponding account name to the user’s account.
- Region: This column shows the region in which your resource exists.
- Identifier: This column shows the corresponding instance ID of your resource.
- State: This column shows the status whether reservation (billing discount) on your instance is active or not.
|Account Id||Applying the account Id filter will display data for the selected account Id.|
|Region||Applying region filter will display data according to the selected region.|
|Severity||Applying severity filter will display data according to the selected severity type i.e. selecting critical will display all resources with critical severity. Same will be the case for warning and ok severity types|
|Resource Tags||Applying resource tags filter will display those resources which have been assigned the selected resource tag. For e.g., If the user has tagged some resource by a tag named environment, then selecting it from the resource tags filter will display all the resources tagged by environment.|
|Resource Tags Value||Applying resource tags value filter will display data which will have the selected resource tag value. For e.g., If the user has tagged some resource by a tag named environment and has given it a value say production (environment:production), then the user will be able to view data of all the resources which are tagged as “environment:production”. The user can use the tag value filter only when a tag name has been provided.|
