Dashbird’s pricing model is based on resource and data usage. Dashbird only charges for the resources that are active (not disabled) in the Dashbird app. You can find the billable and non-billable resources from the billing section.

To optimize your cost we recommend filtering your AWS resources to monitor the ones that are needed. Here’s how to do this in the Dashbird app.

Selecting cloud resources to monitor

In the Inventory section in the Dashbird app, locate the cloud resource you want to select and click on the settings icon.

At the bottom of the page, you will see two sections (with Lambdas four sections):

  • Include resources by tag
  • Exclude resources by tag
  • Include resources by name (Lambdas only)
  • Exclude resources by name (Lambdas only)

Specify a key-value pair in the first one to select which resources you’d like Dashbird to monitor for you. Include key-value pairs in the second one to determine resources that should be excluded from Dashbird monitoring. Make sure your AWS resources are tagged appropriately according to the key-value pairs selected in our system.

Lambdas only*

For Lambda functions you also have the option to filter the resources by name.

Filters are glob patterns. Use an asterisk (*) as a wildcard to match one or multiple characters.

Example: Exclude all the resources that contain the phrase “test-python” and start with “alarms”.
