AWS Compute Optimizer now helps you quickly identify and prioritize top optimization opportunities through two new sets of dashboard-level metrics: savings opportunity and performance improvement opportunity.

Savings opportunity metrics quantify the Amazon EC2, Amazon EBS, and AWS Lambda monthly savings you can achieve at the account level, resource type level, or resource level by adopting Compute Optimizer recommendations. You can use these metrics to evaluate and prioritize cost efficiency opportunities, as well as monitor your cost efficiency over time. Performance improvement opportunity metrics quantify the percentage and number of underprovisioned resources at the account level and resource type level. You can use these metrics to evaluate and prioritize performance improvement opportunities that address resource bottleneck risks.

Savings opportunity and performance improvement opportunity metrics are available in all regions where AWS Compute Optimizer is available, except for AWS Regions in China, for free. You can start using Compute Optimizer through the AWS Management Console, AWS Command Line Interface, or AWS SDK. For more information on the resource efficiency metrics, read this blog.
