Inconsistent multiple Cost and Usage Report created


Hi AWS and AWS users,

I am creating CUR(Cost and Usage Report) with the following configurations

  • Default content
  • Refresh automatically
  • Report data time granularity : Hourly
  • Report versioning : Create new report version

with the settings above, I was expecting a single report containing hourly logs to be created when AWS refreshes the CUR(up to 3 times a day).

However I am receiving multiple CUR in my bucket such as

  • 20230312T081141Z

  • MyCostReport-00001.csv.gz (55.6 MB)

  • MyCostReport-00002.csv.gz (3.6 MB)

  • MyCostReport-00003.csv.gz (1.9 KB)

  • 20230314T152624Z

  • MyCostReport-00001.csv.gz (58.3 MB)

  • MyCostReport-00002.csv.gz (58.2 MB)

  • MyCostReport-00003.csv.gz (4.4 MB)

  • MyCostReport-00004.csv.gz (1.9 KB)

To sum up, I'd like to ask why

  • Multiple CURs are created (with such different sizes)
  • Numbers of CURs created are inconsistent (sometimes 3, sometimes 4)

I'd appreciate any help possible with the issue.

Thank you.

Hello You can see explanation on CUR files in the documentation here If the update includes a large file, AWS might split it into multiple files. size can vary between days, depending on your account(s) activity
