Oracle has started rolling out a new feature for Cost Reporting. For a while now daily Usage reports where available, but these reports only contained quantities of usage, like 8 hours of OCPU, but no actual $ cost.
The new daily Costs reports show the actual consumption cost of all your services! If you are not seeing the Cost reports yet, be patient 🙂
So great, you now have daily file your can download for Usage and Cost… but how do you make sense of it all???
Thanks to the great work of Adi Zohar you can dump all this data into the Oracle Autonomous Database and using APEX get a great app interface to analyze all your cost.
You can find the instruction to set this all up here:

Just to be clear, this has been created by Adi, this is not an official Oracle application. But the reports are ofcourse official OCI usage and Cost reports.
