Analyze Cost for GCP

Updated 3 weeks ago by Archana Singh

Harness Continuous Efficiency (CE) allows you to view your Google Cloud Platform (GCP) costs, understand what is costing the most, and analyze cost trends. CE displays data for all your GCP products (such as Compute Engine, Cloud Storage, BigQuery, and so on), projects, SKUs, and region, and also provides details on:

  • GCP cloud cost spending trends
  • The GCP products costing the most in a selected time range. For example, how much Compute Engine cost last week
  • Primary cost contributor, such as, product, project, SKUs, or region
  • GCP spending by region, such as, us-west1 or us-east4
