Transcript

Let's talk about reports. Reports can be super, super, super useful. For example, in this case, I build a specific view for EC2 instances running in Frankfurt, in the EU region on a monthly base, like on a base for December, in this case. And because I wanna use this view more often, I can save it as a report. And to do this, I just click here on save as. I give this one a title, EU-EC2. I save it, and that's it.

By clicking here, on recent reports, I can see this report. Or I can just go under report overview and see all the reports that I have here. The reports with a lock here are default AWS reports, and the one without a lock are my own reports.

Some of the AWS reports can be pretty useful. For example, what I use quite a lot is the RI utilization and coverage, or the savings plan utilization and coverage, that basically shows you how effective or efficient your reservations are.
