Below is a screenshot of my lightsail instance :
As can see the costs have risen considerable over the past few days.
Reading the billing section of https://aws.amazon.com/lightsail/faq/ I don't sections of how to pin point the reasons for this cost increase. I've a MySql instance installed on the box that is adding approx 100 rows of data to a table containing 10 columns every 5 minutes. But certainly does not exceed as per the plan :
" Every single Lightsail plan also includes a healthy amount of free IN and OUT data transfer. For example, using the cheapest Lightsail bundle you can send and receive up to 1 TB of data to the Internet within the month, at no extra charge. "
Also I've installed a scheduled task which requests data from 5 server endpoints.
How to pin point the source of the service charges ?
Viewing costs by hourly breakdown instead of by day will assist in pinpointing the costs overrun. Is this option available ? On the cost explorer dashboard there does not appear to be any option to reduce the granularity costs based on time ?
