Amazon Comprehend now supports two new AWS Trusted Advisor checks to help customers optimize the cost and security of Amazon Comprehend endpoints.

AWS Trusted Advisor provides recommendations that help you follow AWS best practices. Trusted Advisor evaluates your account by using checks. These checks identify ways to optimize your AWS infrastructure, improve security and performance, reduce costs, and monitor service quotas. Today, Amazon Comprehend checks are available in the AWS Business Support and AWS Enterprise Support plans. The new checks are:

  1. Underutilized endpoints: Checks the throughput configuration of your endpoints and generates a warning when they are not actively used for any real-time inference requests.
  2. Endpoint permissions: Checks the KMS key permissions for an endpoint whose underlying model was encrypted using customer managed keys. If the customer managed key has been disabled or the key policy has been changed to alter the granted permissions for Amazon Comprehend for any reason, the endpoint availability might be impacted.

The new checks are available to view in the Trusted Advisor portion of the AWS Console as well as accessible via the AWS Support API. Customers can set up alerts based on the results of Trusted Advisor checks.
