I’m trying to use the CloudWatch billing functionality to build a Estimated Charges dashboard. I just installed Grafana 4.1.1 on my macOS 10.12.4 machine and downloaded the EC2 Billing dashboard but I can’t get it to show any datapoints. I have other EC2 dashboards that are working fine so I don’t think it’s my setup. I even tried to build a simple custom dashboard using the EC2/Billing query and it doesn’t show any datapoints or generate any errors that I can see. I simply get Null values from the query.
My question is how do I find out what’s going on. As I said, I’m new to Grafana so I’m not exactly sure how it works. I’ve turned up the logging to debug but that didn’t seem to do much. Is there a way to see the communication from the CloudWatch source? Maybe it’s getting an error in there somewhere.
