AnomalyMonitor - AWS Billing and Cost Management

AnomalyMonitor

This object continuously inspects your account's cost data for anomalies. It's based on MonitorType and MonitorSpecification. The content consists of detailed metadata and the current status of the monitor object.

Contents

CreationDate

The date when the monitor was created.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 0. Maximum length of 40.

Pattern: (\d{4}-\d{2}-\d{2})(T\d{2}:\d{2}:\d{2}Z)?

Required: No

DimensionalValueCount

The value for evaluated dimensions.

Type: Integer

Valid Range: Minimum value of 0.

Required: No

LastEvaluatedDate

The date when the monitor last evaluated for anomalies.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 0. Maximum length of 40.

Pattern: (\d{4}-\d{2}-\d{2})(T\d{2}:\d{2}:\d{2}Z)?

Required: No

LastUpdatedDate

The date when the monitor was last updated.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 0. Maximum length of 40.

Pattern: (\d{4}-\d{2}-\d{2})(T\d{2}:\d{2}:\d{2}Z)?

Required: No

MonitorArn

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) value.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 0. Maximum length of 1024.

Pattern: [\S\s]*

Required: No

MonitorDimension

The dimensions to evaluate.

Type: String

Valid Values: SERVICE

Required: No

MonitorName

The name of the monitor.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 0. Maximum length of 1024.

Pattern: [\S\s]*

Required: Yes

MonitorSpecification

Use Expression to filter by cost or by usage. There are two patterns:

  • Simple dimension values - You can set the dimension name and values for the filters that you plan to use. For example, you can filter for REGION==us-east-1 OR REGION==us-west-1. For GetRightsizingRecommendation, the Region is a full name (for example, REGION==US East (N. Virginia). The Expression example is as follows:

    { "Dimensions": { "Key": "REGION", "Values": [ "us-east-1", “us-west-1” ] } }

    The list of dimension values are OR'd together to retrieve cost or usage data. You can create Expression and DimensionValues objects using either with* methods or set* methods in multiple lines.

  • Compound dimension values with logical operations - You can use multiple Expression types and the logical operators AND/OR/NOT to create a list of one or more Expression objects. By doing this, you can filter on more advanced options. For example, you can filter on ((REGION == us-east-1 OR REGION == us-west-1) OR (TAG.Type == Type1)) AND (USAGE_TYPE != DataTransfer). The Expression for that is as follows:

    { "And": [ {"Or": [ {"Dimensions": { "Key": "REGION", "Values": [ "us-east-1", "us-west-1" ] }}, {"Tags": { "Key": "TagName", "Values": ["Value1"] } } ]}, {"Not": {"Dimensions": { "Key": "USAGE_TYPE", "Values": ["DataTransfer"] }}} ] }

    Note

    Because each Expression can have only one operator, the service returns an error if more than one is specified. The following example shows an Expression object that creates an error.

    { "And": [ ... ], "DimensionValues": { "Dimension": "USAGE_TYPE", "Values": [ "DataTransfer" ] } }

Note

For the GetRightsizingRecommendation action, a combination of OR and NOT isn't supported. OR isn't supported between different dimensions, or dimensions and tags. NOT operators aren't supported. Dimensions are also limited to LINKED_ACCOUNT, REGION, or RIGHTSIZING_TYPE.

For the GetReservationPurchaseRecommendation action, only NOT is supported. AND and OR aren't supported. Dimensions are limited to LINKED_ACCOUNT.

Type: Expression object

Required: No

MonitorType

The possible type values.

Type: String

Valid Values: DIMENSIONAL | CUSTOM

Required: Yes
