Using the PowerDown Dashboard
The PowerDown home page is your dashboard for the service. From here, you can see how much you are saving, what is the current state of managed resources and what recent actions PowerDown has taken on your behalf.
The status is separated into four areas:
- Savings Cards
- Cloud Spend and Savings
- Managed Resources
- Recent Actions
The dashboard displays savings card statistics at a glance. The savings in each card is the amount you have or will have saved by powering down resources. These are the savings that you would normally have paid to your cloud provider if the resource was left powered up.
For more details, see Dashboard Help in the PowerDown App.
Cloud Spend and Savings
The Cloud Spend and Savings graph tracks your total account cloud spend and net savings over time.
The managed resources table shows your resources that are managed by PowerDown. These are the resources that are either being Spot Optimized or are being powered up or down by PowerDown.
You can click on an individual resource to display or edit the resource details and you can directly power up or down resources by clicking on the toggle. Click on the "Desired" schedule icon to create a schedule for the resource.
Recent Schedule Actions
The actions table shows the most recent PowerDown actions. This is a subset of the recent events in the PowerDown log trail which records important account and resource actions. You can view the full log by clicking on the table or by navigating to the Trail Log.
