When you plug your Amazon Web Services credentials into CloudCheckr, we will create an inventory of everything you have deployed, and present it back to you in simple, easy to understand reports. These reports are designed to allow anyone from an AWS administrator to a CTO to obtain a complete picture of their AWS deployment, without having to sift through the clunky AWS Management Console. Many of the reports can also be exported to a PDF for distribution.
You will find six different types of reports in CloudCheckr:
CloudCheckr’s cost reports can utilize both AWS Detailed Billing as well as CloudWatch cost data for its analysis and predictions. There are reports that provide daily, weekly, and historic cost breakdowns. CloudCheckr can analyze your Detailed Billing Reports and allow you to filter and splice the data to extrapolate the information that you need. There are also reports that locate areas where you can immediately cut costs.

CloudCheckr’s Best Practices report takes a detailed look at your AWS deployment to ensure your infrastructure is configured properly. The report will locate and highlight areas that may be cause for concern across four main categories: availability, cost, security, and usage. This report can also be delivered as a daily email.

CloudCheckr’s Change Monitoring report allows you to track the day-to-day changes that occur within your AWS account. A snapshot of your AWS deployment is captured daily and compared against the previous day. If anything has been added, deleted, or modified, you will be made aware. This report can also be delivered daily via email.

CloudCheckr provides multiple Resource Utilization reports across many AWS services including EC2, RDS, ElastiCache, and DynamoDB. Summary reports provide a high-level look at all of the resources running under each service, while Detailed reports look at the utilization of each resource. You will also see Heat Maps showing utilization trends each hour of each day and a report with information on Idle Instances.
Inventory reports provide both a summary and detailed look at each service deployed within AWS. The summary reports show you information such as the total number of resources deployed and within which regions, pricing types, platforms, and usage. The detailed reports show you specifics for each resource launched. You will see cost information, properties, resource utilization statistics, etc. The detailed reports can also be filtered and sorted to help you quickly locate resources.
CloudCheckr provides two different types of trending reports: EC2 Instance History and Service Trends.
EC2 Instance History allows you to keep track of how your EC2 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.

Service Trends look at important aspects of each AWS service and builds graphs showing how those services fluctuate on a day-to-day basis. These trends can be viewed over the past 7, 30, 90, 180, or 365 days.
