Monitoring usage and cost for a behavior graph (administrator account)

Amazon Detective bills each account for the data used in each behavior graph that the account belongs to. Detective charges a tiered flat rate per GB for all data regardless of the source.

For administrator accounts, the Usage page of the Detective console shows the volume of data ingested into their behavior graph over the previous 30 days. Administrator accounts also see a projected cost for a typical 30-day period for their account and for the entire behavior graph.

To view Detective usage information

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console. Then open the Detective console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/detective/.

  2. In the Detective navigation pane, under Settings, choose Usage.

Volume of data ingested for each account

Ingested volume by member account lists the active accounts in the behavior graph. It does not list member accounts that were removed.

For each account, the ingested volume list provides the following information.

  • The AWS account identifier and root user email address.

  • The date when the account began to contribute data to the behavior graph.

    For the administrator account, this is the date when the account enabled Detective.

    For member accounts, this is the date when an account was enabled as a member account after accepting the invitation.

  • The volume of ingested data from the account over the previous 30 days. The total includes all source types.

  • Whether the account is currently in the free trial period. For accounts that are currently in their free trial period, the list displays the number of days remaining.

    If none of the accounts are in the free trial period, then the free trial status column is not displayed.
