Does aws dashboard normally reflect the instance running?
I tried running my instance on cygwin and saw the AWS EC2 dashboard not showing the instance running so I thought it’s not running.
However, when i came back many hours later and saw my AWS billing i got charged absurd amount of money for instance that i didn’t know was running.
Does aws dashboard not reflect the running instance if i run the instance on cygwin??
Yes they do reflect. The issue you are facing may be of cygwin and aws dashboard synchronization.
It does reflect what instance you are running for a given region, but you might have opened dashboard for one region, for example us-east-1, but started it from cygwin in another region, like us-west-2.
One thing AWS does well is customer service. I have complained a few times about unexpected bills and they send you a credit that covers the cost and more.
Yes, the region was us-east-1 instead of us-west-2. I’m trying to ask aws for possible concession for the unexpected bills.
Thanks for your advice guys!!
