Cost vs Utilization Report Settings

Following are the available parameter settings that you can customize for Cost vs Utilization (CvU) reports. These settings apply to both AWS and Azure reports.

For a list of the default settings for CvU reports, see Default Settings for Cost vs Utilization Reports.

Report Format

  • Group Data by: Select from the categories General, Attribute, Tag, Period, or Other


    You can only choose Cumulative Daily Run Rate when the time range is set to Current Month.

    When you select a Group Data by option of "Cumulative Daily Run Rate" the chart and table change to be grouped by day of the month, and the chart shows cumulative totals instead of daily totals. (Meaning day 3 shows totals for day 1 + day 2 + day 3).

  • Sort Data by: Select the item to sort by and whether the data is presented in ascending or descending order.

    Options are:

  • Limit number of groups in the chart: Options are Show All, Top 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 400, 1000.


  • Utilization Metric: Options are CPU Utilization % or Memory Utilization %.

    Memory utilization metric collection depends on AWS CloudWatch. If you need to install CloudWatch on the EC2 instance you want metrics for, see AWS documentation for installation details.

  • Metric Statistic: Options are Mean, Maximum, 95th Percentile, Minimum.

The content of the graph and table columns in the report change depending on the Utilization Metric and Metric Statistic that are chosen.
