Billing metrics can be collected from AWS by using the Datadog-AWS Billing integration.
Further information on this can be found within the app here: https://app.datadoghq.com/account/settings#integrations/amazon_billing
To begin collecting billing metrics:
Select “Billing” on the AWS configuration tile and include the permission
budgets:ViewBudget in your Datadog AWS policy.
Enable billing metrics within the AWS Console.
The following metrics are available using the Datadog-AWS Billing integration:
||dollars||The actual spending costs for your budget period|
||dollars||The spending limit for your budget period|
||dollars||The estimated charges for your AWS usage. This can either be estimated charges for one service or a roll-up of estimated charges for all services.|
||dollars||The forecasted spending costs for your budget period|
For more robust cost monitoring across a number of cloud services in addition to AWS, Datadog supports 3rd-party integration with CloudHealth. This blog post has a more in-depth look at how CloudHealth integrates with Datadog to enable visibility of cost across your hosted infrastructure.
