Is there documentation regarding how Quicksight charges are reflected in the CUR? I'm trying to match what I'm being charged vs the quick sight Pricing page:

Dear friends, Greetings. I need help with a project in Quicksight that was delegated to me. I have the budget for 2023, where I have to add month by month the amounts spent. But I have not been able to find a way to add up the months to today. I have the following table in Quicksight, the idea is that at the end of the current month it shows the sum of the previous months. I have been thinking about a kpi, I don't know if it is the right one. ![Enter image description here](/media/postImages/original/IMhqtxQZbGS1mOpD5HT6BcAw)
How to see the Egress Cost
Hi, My company is migrating to AWS from On-perm. I'm doing a POC to see what will be my egress cost when all the accounts move from On-perm to AWS. I have created the existing data model in AWS Redshift and accessing the data through Azure Power BI. I want to see cost while using the import model vs direct query. I have couple of reports in Power BI service pointing to AWS Redshift tables. I couldn't get any decent information from AWS team about how much data is being transferred from AWS to Public internet. I tried cost explorer, Bill sections and didn't find any useful information. I really appreciate if someone can show me where i can get either data transfer or egress information Thanks, Miky

Need help to understand Redshift Serverless costs
I'm using Redshift Serverless to run some tests, but I don't understand how it's being billed. I'm still on the Free Tier $300, but already used almost $50 of those, and according to my calculations, the cost should be less than $2 so far. ![Enter image description here](/media/postImages/original/IM7KWpN_prSgqg3s9BsfEJZQ) I understand that Redshift Serverless is billed for RPU and Storage. But when I check the usage using: ``` select date_trunc('day', start_time) usage_date, sum(compute_seconds) total_compute_seconds, sum(compute_seconds)/(60*60) total_compute_hours, total_compute_hours*0.375 total_compute_cost from sys_serverless_usage group by date_trunc('day', start_time); ``` Result shows that the cost should be less than $2 so far: ![Enter image description here](/media/postImages/original/IM66nz2iuHQfesqSiwDkiArA) Storage doesn't seem to be the cost either, as the cost of it shows $0 so far, using: ``` SELECT date_trunc('day', start_time) usage_date, SUM((data_storage/(1024*1024*1024))*(datediff(s,start_time,end_time)/3600.0)) AS GB_hours, GB_hours / 720 AS GB_months, GB_months*0.024 AS storage_cost_day FROM sys_serverless_usage GROUP BY 1 ORDER BY 1; ``` I need help to understand where the money is going, if there is some fixed cost or how is it draining so fast? I also tried to find Redshift Serverless on the Billing section, but it doesn't seem to be there (maybe cause it's still under the Free Tier, but some services show up there even when cost is $0) Thanks in advance!

Do I realy have to pay for each time amazon tries it and it fails because of an expired CC? Domain renew failed: [We can't finish renewing your domain because we can't process your payment. Check your payment information and try again.]
Is EFS Provisioned Throughput mode billed at daily granularity?
According to AWS documentation, `You can decrease your file system throughput in Provisioned Throughput mode as long as it’s been more than 24 hours since the last decrease. Additionally, you can change between Provisioned Throughput mode and the default Bursting Throughput mode as long as it’s been more than 24 hours since the last throughput mode change.` Does it also mean that if I enable Provisioned Throughput and then, switch back to Bursting Throughput mode after 24 hrs, the charges for the Provisioned Throughput are only for that 1 day or worst case 2 days? Has anyone had experience doing this? Thank you in advance.

How does AWS charge me if added an instance to EC2 Saving Plan
Let's say I have t3 family, and committed an EC2 Saving Plan with the upfront payment $5000/year. Now I have an one-month-term temporary instance needs to be in t3 family, should I request the commit rate change? or this temporary usage can be absorbed and amortized to my 1-year commit term without extra charge (assume the total usage is not passed the commit number)?
Transit Gateway Metrics compared to bill
Hi. I am trying to establish monitoring for our high transit gateway cost and I can't seem to get them to agree. It looks like either the CloudWatch metrics for Transit Gateway are incorrect, or I am being highly overcharged for Transit Gateway usage. After doing some analysis on an hour of flow logs, I am thinking that the metrics are incorrect, or I am not understanding how to interpret them. I have tried to go over everything publicly available. Please correct me if I am mistaken. It is my understanding that the transit gateway billing is based on the number of bytes that the gateway processes. This should be fully accountable by adding up all the TransitGateway/Per-TransitGateway Metrics/BytesIn metrics for all the transit gateways in my account. CloudWatch does not give units for this metric, so I am assuming that it reports the number of bytes in each minute sent to the TGW, since docs say that this metric is reported every minute. However, if I look at this number, taking an average value over weeks and extrapolate it out to a month, it is off by like a factor of 2000x from the number reported in my bill. Can I get an explanation of how I can accurately break down and monitor my Transit Gateway traffic bill?

AWS Free Tier services
Hi, I created the AWS account around a year back and i have no background related to this at all. I'm only here because I received a mail from AWS asking me to cancel any active services or i'll be billed for any active services. I'm really confused what to do now, i have no used this service even once. I opened "Bill Management" page and clicked on the "Free Tier" tab on the left side and it showed this message under the "AWS Free Tier summary" " There is no Free Tier services data available". Does this mean I did not subscribed and started any services? I can just close the account and not worry about any payments right?
