Cleanup Unused EBS Volumes
AWS Resource Type:
This FF Finds and deletes unused EBS volumes
Criteria for identifying the opportunity:
EBS volumes that have been detached for more than 1 week are identified as an opportunity.
Potential savings (range in % on annual basis):
All savings are realized by deleting detached EBS volumes. Thus, savings are accrued by subtracting the cost of the volume from the cost of the snapshot.
What happens when the Fixer is executed?
A snapshot is taken of the EBS volume, and the volume is deleted.
Is it possible to rollback once CloudFix implements the fixer?
The EBS volume can be restored with the snapshot.
To restore the volume, do the following:
- On the Amazon AWS console, choose
Elastic Block Storemenu.
- Find the snapshot to restore.
Can CloudFix implement the fix automatically once I accept the recommendation?
Does this fix require downtime?
No, it only operates on detached volumes.
