ProjectedMetric - AWS Compute Optimizer

ProjectedMetric

Describes a projected utilization metric of a recommendation option, such as an Amazon EC2 instance. This represents the projected utilization of a recommendation option had you used that resource during the analyzed period.

Compare the utilization metric data of your resource against its projected utilization metric data to determine the performance difference between your current resource and the recommended option.

Note

The Cpu and Memory metrics are the only projected utilization metrics returned when you run the GetEC2RecommendationProjectedMetrics action. Additionally, the Memory metric is returned only for resources that have the unified CloudWatch agent installed on them. For more information, see Enabling Memory Utilization with the CloudWatch Agent.

name

The name of the projected utilization metric.

The following projected utilization metrics are returned:

  • Cpu - The projected percentage of allocated EC2 compute units that would be in use on the recommendation option had you used that resource during the analyzed period. This metric identifies the processing power required to run an application on the recommendation option.

    Depending on the instance type, tools in your operating system can show a lower percentage than CloudWatch when the instance is not allocated a full processor core.

    Units: Percent

  • Memory - The percentage of memory that would be in use on the recommendation option had you used that resource during the analyzed period. This metric identifies the amount of memory required to run an application on the recommendation option.

    Units: Percent

    Note

    The Memory metric is returned only for resources that have the unified CloudWatch agent installed on them. For more information, see Enabling Memory Utilization with the CloudWatch Agent.
