[GCP] Where to find the cost of an instance, created by CLI?

#1

Hi,

I can’t find the actual price (per hour) of the instance I created with the gcloud cli. Can anyone help me here?

When you create an instance in the browser it shows you the price of that instance.
But I had to use the command line tool, because the browser gui didn’t let me create a preemptible instance based on a marketplace image.

This is the command I used and it worked well, if someone wants to use it:

export IMAGE_FAMILY="tf-latest-gpu"
export ZONE="us-west1-b"
export INSTANCE_NAME="my-workhorse"
export INSTANCE_TYPE="n1-highmem-8"

gcloud compute instances create $INSTANCE_NAME \
  --zone=$ZONE \
  --image-family=$IMAGE_FAMILY \
  --image-project=deeplearning-platform-release \
  --maintenance-policy=TERMINATE \
  --accelerator="type=nvidia-tesla-v100,count=1" \
  --machine-type=$INSTANCE_TYPE \
  --metadata="install-nvidia-driver=True" \
  --preemptible \
  --boot-disk-size=200GB \
  --boot-disk-type=pd-ssd
