Elastigroup’s Showback Comes to Amazon ECS

When using many machine instances in a cluster such as with Amazon ECS, it can be hard to pinpoint costs to a specific workload or application. To help organizations better understand the costs of their workloads on AWS ECS, Showback was added to Elastigroup. Showback breaks down the costs of the cluster to uncover the costs of the underlying applications and understand the resource consumption of the various components.

Showback is located under the Costs tab within the Elastigroup Management View. In the image below, you can see the cost for each namespace and how it relates to a percentage of the total cluster cost.
