AWS Integration - Billing

Mackerel supports obtaining and monitoring AWS Billing metrics with AWS Integration. When integrating with AWS Integration, billable targets are determined using the conversion 1 management account = 1 Micro Host. In addition to this, charges may be incurred if the maximum number of retrievable metrics per micro host is exceeded.

Please refer to the following page for AWS Integration configuration methods and a list of supported AWS services.

  • Enter the budget name in place of # in "Metric name in Mackerel". If the budget name contains characters that cannot be used in metric names, those characters will be encoded.
