Monitoring AWS EC2 Burnrate with Grok

Joe Block • Site Reliability Engineer

NOTE: Numenta has announced a strategic partnership with Avik
please read more about the future of
Grok for IT Analytics.

A few months ago, we mentioned that we’re monitoring our AWS EC2 costs with
Grok. We developed a simple script to monitor our burnrate and ensure that when
our spend changed, we knew about it and could take action. Since we posted
Grok For Managing AWS Cost Anomalies,
we’ve had requests for more details and for access to the script.

Today we’re happy to announce that the script is available on Github at
You can run it as a standalone script or with Docker using the Dockerfile
there or by pulling from the public Docker registry.
