Monitoring AWS EC2 Reserved Instances

AWS Reserved instance offers can be a great way to save money, but it can be challenging to keep track of all of the expiration dates when you’re managing multiple offers. While an expired offer likely won’t impact performance of your cloud infrastructure, it can have significant effect on your bill.

With LogicMonitor’s EC2 Reserved Instances DataSource (AWS_EC2_Reserved_Instance) you can see all of your reserved instance offers, when they expire & what types of instances they apply to.  All offers will be auto discovered as instances, with offer id as instance name and offer type as description, and time until expiration will be monitored and graphed.
