In this video, see how to configure AWS to be able to set up CloudWatch billing alarms.
- [Instructor] In this movie, we're going to take a look…at tools within the Amazon ecosystem…that can help us control costs.…We're going to start by looking at CloudWatch.…CloudWatch of course is logging.…And you'll note on the left side here,…there's a Billing section.…So, let's look at the Billing section…and you can see that the initial state of an account…is that there are no billing metrics.…What you need to do in order to enable billing metrics…is you need to work with the Account Billing console…and then going to Preferences,…and then you need to set up…a notification for the billing alerts.…
So, I'm going to go ahead over to the Billing Console…and do that now.…I'm in the Billing console…and if I look at Preferences,…by default, there's nothing turned on,…so I need to turn on Receive Billing Alerts at minimum.…I can also receive PDF invoice by email.…And optionally, I can turn on Receive Billing Reports.…What's going to happen with this…is the billing information is going to go as a text file…into an S3 bucket.…
