I have an RDS instance running of type
db.t2.small. I bought a reserved instance for 1 year of the same type, I paid the partial upfront rate.
Do I need to assign this subscription in some way to my existing instance to say 'This is the instance that is using the subscription' or does AWS just charge for the instance usage depending which instances you have running and whether an available subscription was active for it at the time which determines the running rate?
The reason that I ask is that I can't see any mention of the reduced rate on my AWS Billing area and it shows that I've used 17 hours of my reservation, but there isn't a row on my bill so far this month that indicates the new partial upfront rate that I should be charged for my instance.
