- [Instructor] The next Amazon tools…for cost control are in the dashboard.…And we're going to start with the Bills and Cost Explorer.…Before we do that though,…let's just take a glance at the dashboard.…So you can see that you have some common metrics here,…some month-to-date spend by service.…And we can have the various service charges.…For example, we had set up AWS config.…And so in the couple of days…I've been recording this course,…we've incurred a cost of a little over $2 US,…and this is reflected in this graph.…
We also have some information…about free tier services by usage, and then some alerts.…Notice we have a billing alert,…because we set that up in a previous movie…and now it's in an alert status.…So this an all up view.…There are some filtering on this dashboard,…but there's not a lot of ability to create custom reports…as we'll see with some other external tools…in subsequent movies.…So this is the dashboard.…The next tool that we have inside of here is Bills.…
