Opt in Amazon Compute Optimizer for Trusted Advisor checks

Compute Optimizer is a service that analyzes the configuration and utilization metrics of your Amazon resources. This service reports whether your resources are correctly configured for efficiency and reliability. It also suggests improvements you can implement to improve workload performance. With Compute Optimizer, you view the same recommendations in your Trusted Advisor checks.

You can opt in either your Amazon Web Services account only, or all member accounts that are part of an organization in Amazon Organizations. For more information, see Getting started in the Amazon Compute Optimizer User Guide.

Once you opt in for Compute Optimizer, the following checks receive data from your Lambda functions and Amazon EBS volumes. It can take up to 12 hours to generate the findings and optimization recommendations. It can then take up to 48 hours to view your results in Trusted Advisor for the following checks:

Cost optimization

  • Amazon EBS over-provisioned volumes

  • Amazon Lambda over-provisioned functions for memory size


  • Amazon EBS under-provisioned volumes

  • Amazon Lambda under-provisioned functions for memory size

  • Results for these checks are automatically refreshed several times daily. Refresh requests are not allowed. It might take a few hours for changes to appear. Currently, you can’t exclude resources from these checks.

  • Trusted Advisor already has the Underutilized Amazon EBS Volumes and the Overutilized Amazon EBS Magnetic Volumes checks.

    Once you opt in with Compute Optimizer, we recommend that you use the new Amazon EBS over-provisioned volumes and Amazon EBS under-provisioned volumes checks instead.
