Working with Amazon S3 Storage Lens using the console and API

Amazon S3 Storage Lens aggregates your usage and activity metrics and displays the information in the account snapshot on the Amazon S3 console home (Buckets) page, interactive dashboards, or through a metrics export that you can download in CSV or Parquet format. You can use the dashboard to visualize insights and trends, flag outliers, and receive recommendations for optimizing storage costs and applying data protection best practices. You can use S3 Storage Lens through the AWS Management Console, AWS CLI, AWS SDKs, or REST API.
