ElastiCache Nodes Report

The ElastiCache Nodes Report provides details about each Node launched within your AWS account.

You can use the filter options at the top of the report to filter and search for Nodes by:

  • Node – search for the name of the node you would like to see in the report.
  • Cluster – search for Nodes by Cluster Name.
  • Status – search for nodes that are currently available or being deleted.
  • Cost – search for nodes by Cost.  Can search for exact cost matches or for items that are greater than/less than a cost you specify.
  • Region – search for nodes by AWS Region.

You can also choose which columns to display in the report, and can sort the report by any of the above filtering options.

Use the “show number of results” box to choose the number of ‘Top’ results to display.  For example: if you sort by Cost Descending and choose to show 50 results (as shown in the screenshot above), the report will show the 50 most expensive Nodes.
