Amazon Cost Anomaly Detection
Automated cost anomaly detection and root cause analysis
Simple 3-step setup to evaluate spend anomalies for all Amazon Web Services services individually, member accounts, cost allocation tags, or cost categories.
Dive deeper to better understand your cost drivers based on seasonally-aware patterns (e.g. weekly) to minimize false positives.
Define custom anomaly thresholds and receive alerts, either individually or on a daily or weekly cadence.
Quickly visualize daily cost trends in Amazon Cost Explorer, automatically filtered to the cost that matters most.
Reduce cost surprises and enhance control without slowing innovation with Amazon Cost Anomaly Detection. Amazon Cost Anomaly Detection leverages advanced Machine Learning technologies to identify anomalous spend and root causes, so you can quickly take action. With three simple steps, you can create your own contextualized monitor and receive alerts when any anomalous spend is detected. Let builders build and let Amazon Cost Anomaly Detection monitor your spend and reduce the risk of billing surprises.
Get started by creating Amazon Cost Anomaly Detection via Amazon Cost Explorer API, or directly in the Cost Management Console. Once you set up your monitor and alert preference, we will notify you with individual alerts or daily or weekly summary via Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) or emails. You can also monitor and do your own anomaly analysis in Amazon Cost Explorer.
How it works
Reduce surprise bills
Stay informed of spend anomalies through automated detection alert, via email or Amazon SNS topic, at the frequency of your choice.
Set alert subscription
Once you have created your cost monitor, you can choose your alerting preference by setting up a dollar threshold (e.g. only alert on anomalies with impact greater than ¥1,000). You don’t need to define an anomaly (e.g. percent or dollar increase) as Anomaly Detection does this automatically for you and adjusts over time.
Once cost monitors and alert subscriptions are created, you’re all set! Anomaly Detection will begin to work within 24 hours and you will be notified if any anomaly meets your alert threshold. You can visit your Anomaly Detection dashboard to monitor the activities, including anomalies detected that are below your alert threshold.
