We start by using the cost and usage reports from the management account. This gives a view of the instance types that can be reserved in all the children accounts. Then, by analyzing the cost and usage reports for the past 30 days, we recommend the instances that are safe to reserve.
We take a ton of pride in listening to and working with our customers to build Usage in a way that suits all of your needs. If you have any questions about the feature or, have a suggestion of your own, please feel free to reach out!
