CloudCheckr takes a daily snapshot of your AWS account and uses its findings to populate many of its reports. However, it’s also important to keep track of how your deployment fluctuates throughout the day. If you utilize Auto Scaling Groups, for example, you could start and terminate hundreds of EC2 instances over the course of a few hours.
With CloudCheckr’s EC2 Instance History reports you can now know which, and how many, EC2 instances were running every hour of every day.
INSTANCE HISTORY REPORT
The EC2 Instance History report shows the history of the number of hours instances were running for each day. You can filter this report by AMI, Instance ID, Region, Availability Zone, Tags, Instance Type, and Date Range.
Based on the date range you select, and the filter options, you will be able to see the total number of unique EC2 instances that were running over that time frame, as well as the total number of hours running across all instances.
You will also be provided a list of each EC2 instance that ran over that period and its number of hours running. You can also click on any instance in the report to be redirected the Instance History by Time report, filtered by that specific instance.

INSTANCE HISTORY BY TIME
The EC2 Instance History by Time report shows the number of hours all EC2 instances were running for each day or hour. You can filter this report by AMI, Instance ID, Region, Availability Zone, Tags, Instance Type, and Date Range. The report can either be displayed By Day or By Hour for your selected date range.
Based on the date range you select, and the filter options, the report will show you statistics about the number of hours and instances running. You will also see two graphs, showing the number of instances and hours running by day, or hour, depending on your selection.
You can click on any point in the graphs to be shown the Instance History report for the date selected.
