AMI billing information fields - Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud

AMI billing information fields

The following fields provide billing information associated with an AMI:

Platform details

The platform details associated with the billing code of the AMI. For example, Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Usage operation

The operation of the Amazon EC2 instance and the billing code that is associated with the AMI. For example, RunInstances:0010. Usage operation corresponds to the lineitem/Operation column on your AWS Cost and Usage Report (CUR) and in the AWS Price List API.

You can view these fields on the Instances or AMIs page in the Amazon EC2 console, or in the response that is returned by the describe-images command.

Sample data: usage operation by platform

The following table lists some of the platform details and usage operation values that can be displayed on the Instances or AMIs pages in the Amazon EC2 console, or in the response that is returned by the describe-images command.

** If you are running Spot Instances, the lineitem/Operation on your AWS Cost and Usage Report might be different from the Usage operation value that is listed here. For example, if lineitem/Operation displays RunInstances:0010:SV006, it means that Amazon EC2 is running Red Hat Enterprise Linux Spot Instance-hour in US East (Virginia) in VPC Zone #6.
