Displays the charge on oversized, powered off, and idle virtual machines. This information helps to identify the amount of resources that can be reclaimed and provisioned to other objects in your environment or amount of potential savings that can be done in each month.

Potential Cost are savings that can be achieved in the next 30 days by reclaiming resources. You can save x$ in next 30 days.

Fields

Description

Powered-Off VMs

The total storage capacity used is reclaimable. Total storage reclaimable cost is computed by multiplying storage rate with storage utilization. The direct cost of VM is also attributed.

Idle VMs

Total CPU, memory, and storage capacity allocated to the VMs is reclaimable. Resource level costs are computed by multiplying resource base rate with utilization levels. VMs that are running cost past 30 days are considered as idle. Direct cost of VM is also attributed.

Oversized VMs

There is a certain amount of CPU space, memory, and storage capacity allocated to the VMs that is reclaimable. The cost savings for the oversized VMs are not calculated. Even though the oversized category exists, the cost is not shown in this section.

Snapshots

Snapshots of a VM use storage space and such storage is reclaimable. The reclaimable cost is computed by multiplying storage rate with reclaimable storage value.
