S3

Field

Description

Bucket Name

The S3 Bucket Name.

A bucket is a container for objects stored in Amazon S3. Every object is contained in a bucket.

Region

The Region in which the bucket is created in.

You can choose the geographical AWS Region where Amazon S3 will store the buckets that you create. Objects stored in a Region never leave the Region unless you explicitly transfer them to another Region.

Number of Objects

The number of objects saved on the bucket.

Objects are the fundamental entities stored in Amazon S3. Objects consist of object data and metadata. You can store as many objects as you want, and each object can be up to 5 TB in size.

Total Size (MB)

The total bucket size in (MB)

Standard Storage Size (MB)

The size of the objects in Megabytes stored in this bucket in the Standard Storage Class

S3 Standard: The default storage class. If you don't specify the storage class when you upload an object, Amazon S3 assigns the S3 Standard storage class. (used for frequently accessed objects)

Intelligent Tiering FA Storage Size (MB)

The size of the objects in Megabytes stored in this bucket in the Intelligent Tiering FA Storage Class

The Intelligent-Tiering storage class: stores objects in two access tiers: one tier that is optimized for frequent access and another lower-cost tier that is optimized for infrequently accessed data.

Standard IA Storage size (MB)

The size of the objects in Megabytes stored in this bucket in the Standard IA Storage Class

S3 Standard-IA: Storage classes are designed for long-lived and infrequently accessed data. Amazon S3 stores the object data redundantly across multiple geographically separated Availability Zones (similar to the S3 Standard storage class).

One Zone IA Storage Size (MB)

The size of the objects in Megabytes stored in this bucket in the One Zone IA Storage Class

One Zone IA: Storage classes are designed for long-lived and infrequently accessed data. Amazon S3 stores the object data in only one Availability Zone, which makes it less expensive than S3 Standard-IA. However, the data is not resilient to the physical loss of the Availability Zone.

Glacier Storage Size (MB)

The size of the objects in Megabytes stored in this bucket in the Glacier Storage Class

S3 Glacier—Use for archives where portions of the data might need to be retrieved in minutes. Data stored in the S3 Glacier storage class has a minimum storage duration period of 90 days and can be accessed in as little as 1-5 minutes using expedited retrieval

Glacier Deep Archive Storage Size (MB)

The size of the objects in Megabytes stored in this bucket in the Glacier Deep Archive Storage Class.

Glacier Deep Archive: Use for archiving data that rarely needs to be accessed. Data stored in the S3 Glacier Deep Archive storage class has a minimum storage duration period of 180 days and a default retrieval time of 12 hours.

Redundancy Redundancy Storage size (MB)

The size of the objects in Megabytes stored in this bucket in the Redundancy Redundancy Storage Class

Reduced Redundancy—The Reduced Redundancy Storage (RRS) storage class is designed for noncritical, reproducible data that can be stored with less redundancy than the S3 Standard storage class.

Default Encryption Algorithm

The default encryption configuration for an Amazon S3 bucket.

Amazon S3 default encryption provides a way to set the default encryption behavior for an S3 bucket. You can set default encryption on a bucket so that all new objects are encrypted when they are stored in the bucket. The objects are encrypted using server-side encryption with either Amazon S3-managed keys (SSE-S3) or customer master keys (CMKs) stored in AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS).

Server-side encryption is the encryption of data at its destination by the application or service that receives it. Amazon S3 encrypts your data at the object level as it writes it to disks in its data centers and decrypts it for you when you access it

Versioning Status

The versioning state of a bucket.

Amazon S3 Versioning allows users to keep multiple versions of an object in one bucket. S3 Versioning protects you from the consequences of unintended overwrites and deletions. You can also use it to archive objects so that you have access to previous versions.

Website Type

The website configuration for a bucket. To host website on Amazon S3, you can configure a bucket as website by adding a website configuration.

You can use Amazon S3 to host a static website. On a static website, individual webpages include static content. They might also contain client-side scripts.

Is Life Cycle Enabled

Shows the lifecycle configuration information set on the bucket. 

An S3 Lifecycle configuration is a set of rules that define actions that Amazon S3 applies to a group of objects. There are two types of actions:

Transition actions—Define when objects transition to another storage class. For example, you might choose to transition objects to the S3 Standard-IA storage class 30 days after you created them, or archive objects to the S3 Glacier storage class one year after creating them.

Expiration actions—Define when objects expire. Amazon S3 deletes expired objects on your behalf.

 

Glacier Vaults

Field

Description

Vault Name

The name of the vault.

ARN

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the vault.

Region

The vault region.

Number of Archives

The number of archives in the vault as of the last inventory date. This field will return null if an inventory has not yet run on the vault, for example if you just created the vault.

Total Size (MB)

Total size, in Megabytes, of the archives in the vault as of the last inventory date. This field will return null if an inventory has not yet run on the vault, for example if you just created the vault.

 

EFS

Field

Description

Name

The name of the EFS

Region

The Region in which the EFS was created in.

ARN

Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) uniquely identify AWS resources.

Performance Mode

The Performance Mode of the EFS instance.

Amazon EFS is designed to provide the throughput, IOPS, and low latency needed for a broad range of workloads and offers two performance modes:

       General Purpose: provides the lowest latency per file system operation and can achieve this for random or sequential IO patterns.

       Max I/O : can scale to higher levels of aggregate throughput and operations per second and is ideal for highly parallelized applications that can scale out to thousands of Amazon EC2 instances.

Throughput Mode

The Throughput Mode of the EFS instance

The throughput mode helps determine the overall throughput a file system can achieve.

       Bursting Throughput: The throughput scales with the size of the file system, dynamically bursting as needed to support the spiky nature of many file-based workloads.

       Provisioned Throughput: Is designed to support applications that require higher dedicated throughput than the default Bursting mode and can be configured independently of the amount of data stored on the file system.

Standard Size (MB)

The Size of the data in Megabytes stored in the EFS standard class

Standard: The Standard storage class is used to store frequently accessed files.

Infrequent Access Size (MB)

The Size of the data in Megabytes stored in the EFS Infrequent Access class

Infrequent Access: The Infrequent Access (IA) storage class is a lower-cost storage class that's designed for storing long-lived, infrequently accessed files cost-effectively.

Total Size MB)

The total size of Data in Megabytes stored on the EFS instance

Standard Size + Infrequent Size
