StorageObjectCount

Count

Notes:

  1. If you terminate a transfer before completion, the amount of data that is transferred might exceed the amount of data that your application receives. This discrepancy can occur because a transfer termination request cannot be executed instantaneously, and some amount of data might be in transit pending execution of the termination request. This data in transit is billed as data transferred “out.”

  2. When objects that are archived to the S3 Glacier or S3 Glacier Deep Archive storage class are deleted, overwritten, or transitioned to a different storage class before the minimum storage commitment has passed, which is 90 days for S3 Glacier or 180-days for S3 Glacier Deep Archive, there is a prorated charge per gigabyte for the remaining days.

  3. For objects that are in S3 Intelligent-Tiering, S3 Standard-IA, or S3 One Zone-IA storage, when they are deleted, overwritten, or transitioned to a different storage class prior to 30 days, there is a prorated charge per gigabyte for the remaining days.

  4. For small objects (smaller than 128 KB) that are in S3 Standard-IA or S3 One Zone-IA storage, when they are deleted, overwritten, or transitioned to a different storage class prior to 30 days, there is a prorated charge per gigabyte for the remaining days.

  5. There is no minimum billable object size for objects in the S3 Intelligent-Tiering storage class, but objects that are smaller than 128 KB are not eligible for auto-tiering and are always charged at the rate for the S3 Intelligent-Tiering frequent access tier.

Tracking Operations in Your Usage Reports

Operations describe the action taken on your AWS object or bucket by the specified usage type. Operations are indicated by self-explanatory codes, such as PutObject or ListBucket. To see which actions on your bucket generated a specific type of usage, use these codes. When you create a usage report, you can choose to include All Operations, or a specific operation, for example, GetObject, to report on.
