InstanceRecommendation - AWS Compute Optimizer

InstanceRecommendation

Describes an Amazon EC2 instance recommendation.

Contents

accountId

Type: String

Required: No

currentInstanceType

The instance type of the current instance.

Type: String

Required: No

finding

The finding classification for the instance.

Findings for instances include:

  • Underprovisioned —An instance is considered under-provisioned when at least one specification of your instance, such as CPU, memory, or network, does not meet the performance requirements of your workload. Under-provisioned instances may lead to poor application performance.

  • Overprovisioned —An instance is considered over-provisioned when at least one specification of your instance, such as CPU, memory, or network, can be sized down while still meeting the performance requirements of your workload, and no specification is under-provisioned. Over-provisioned instances may lead to unnecessary infrastructure cost.

  • Optimized —An instance is considered optimized when all specifications of your instance, such as CPU, memory, and network, meet the performance requirements of your workload and is not over provisioned. An optimized instance runs your workloads with optimal performance and infrastructure cost. For optimized resources, AWS Compute Optimizer might recommend a new generation instance type.

Note

The values that are returned might be UNDER_PROVISIONED, OVER_PROVISIONED, or OPTIMIZED.
