Benchmark: ECS Checks

Thrifty ECS Benchmark

Thrifty developers eliminate their unused and under-utilized ECS instances. This benchmark focuses on finding resources that have not been restarted recently, have old snapshots and have large, unused or inactive disks.


ecs_disk_max_iopsThe maximum IOPS allowed for disks.32000 IOPS
ecs_disk_max_size_gbThe maximum size in GB allowed for disks.100 GB
ecs_instance_allowed_typesA list of allowed instance types. PostgreSQL wildcards are supported.["%.nano", "%.small", "%._large", ".__large"]
ecs_instance_avg_cpu_utilization_lowThe average CPU utilization required for instances to be considered infrequently used. This value should be lower than ecs_instance_avg_cpu_utilization_high.20%
ecs_instance_avg_cpu_utilization_highThe average CPU utilization required for instances to be considered frequently used. This value should be higher than ecs_instance_avg_cpu_utilization_low.35%
ecs_running_instance_age_max_daysThe maximum number of days instances are allowed to run.90 days
ecs_snapshot_age_max_daysThe maximum number of days snapshots can be retained.90 days
