If you choose to deploy the demo resources for the supported workloads, this solution launches a sample web server that runs on an Amazon EC2 instance. The Amazon EC2 instance sends metrics and logs to Amazon CloudWatch. If the instance runs for one month and generates 10 GB of log data with 1GB of data analyzed by CloudWatch Logs Insight queries, the estimated cost is approximately $13.50 per month, as shown in the following table.

AWS Service Dimension Total Cost (per month)
Amazon CloudWatch 10GB Logs data with 1GB analyzed with CloudWatch Logs Insights queries $5.10
Amazon EC2 t3.micro instance with 8GB EBS (gp2) storage $8.40
