Properties can be set to inform the Compute Software platform of your workload characteristics, performance objectives, and other considerations (full list of Properties in the table below). Properties ensure that your action items are finely tuned and actionable.
To change your Properties, email us at email@example.com.
You can view Properties that have been set for your resource under the Action Item overlay’s “Properties” tab.
Setting a Property
You can set a Property by tag, account, region, VPC, resource kind, resource ID, or any manner in which an individual resource or a group of resources can be identified. Once a Property is set, it is applied to the resource(s) identified. Below are the Properties that can be applied.
Properties and Defaults
The defaults below are used when you first onboard onto the Compute Software Platform. You may change the values to finely tune your action items.
|Performance Cost||Performance Criticality||How important the performance of your workload is to your business.||Highly Critical = $100 per 10-minute window
Critical = $1 per 10-minute window
Less Critical = $0.01 per 10-minute window
|Workload Characteristic||Minimum CPU||The minimum number of CPUs required to run your workload.||Number of CPUs (e.g., 4, 8)||None|
|Workload Characteristic||Minimum GPU||The minimum number of GPUs required to run your workload.||Number of GPUs (e.g., 2,4)||None|
|Workload Characteristic||Minimum Memory||The minimum amount of Memory required to run your workload.||Amount of Memory in GiB (e.g., 128, 256)||None|
|Workload Characteristic||Minimum IOPS||The minimum amount of IOPS required to run your workload.||Amount of IOPS (e.g., 500)||None|
|Workload Characteristic||Minimum Throughput||The minimum amount of Throughput required to run your workload.||Amount of Throughput (e.g., 4,000 MiB/s)||None|
|Workload Characteristic||Minimum Network Bandwidth||The minimum amount of Network Bandwidth required to run your workload.||Amount of Network Bandwidth in Gpbs (e.g., 10, 12, 25)||None|
|Workload Characteristic||Instance Types or Families||Specific instance types or families that your workload can or cannot run on.||Instance type or family (e.g., c5, g4ad)||None|
|Workload Characteristic||No ARM-Based||No ARM-based processor recommendations if your workload is not already running on an ARM-based processor.||Yes or No||None|
|Workload Characteristic||Changeable Virtualization||Your workload may be running on a virtualization type (e.g., paravirtual) and cannot switch to another virtualization type (e.g, HVM).||Yes or No||No|
|Data Criteria||Minimum Resource Age||The minimum amount of time after a resource has been created before it can be analyzed.||Number of days||Instances = 3 days
Volumes = 3 hours
Database instances = 12 hours
|Data Criteria||Minimum Consecutive Metric Duration||The minimum duration of consecutive metrics before it can be analyzed.||Number of days||0 days|
|Data Criteria||Maximum Observation Period||The maximum amount of data for Compute Software to use to create recommendations.||Number of days||Instances = 14 days
Volumes = 30 days
Database Instances = 30 days
|Data Criteria||Idle Resource||A resource that appears to be unused.||No Ops or Connections||Volumes = No Read or Write Ops
DB Instances = No DB Connections
|Engineering Cost||Resolution Cost||The engineering time and effort, translated into cost, of resolving a task.||Dollars||Rightsizing instances = $50
Terminating Idle Volumes = $8
Terminating Unattached Volumes = $4
Terminating Idle DB Instances = $13
|Resource Mode||Resource Mode||Determines how the Compute Software Platform should treat a resource.||Analyze||Analyze = include in metrics and analysis for action items
Disable Analysis = include in metrics, except for % Optimal, and exclude from analysis for action items
Exclude = exclude from metrics and analysis
