I am finding Knime is very powerful tool. Love it. The community is great. Love you all.
In the last few weeks, I have been able to successfully setup a 3 processes.
As we start getting better at it, I decided to install Knime on AWS…Doing it literally today.
With AWS in other contexts, I’ve had a few un-forseen expenses. Their costing method leaves me a bit confused and quite literally out of pocket!
We are a tiny business and want to keep the ongoing costs to a minimum.
All my processes are simple data processing steps that need to be automatically executed once every 24 hours. They are quite literally a series of sql based select followed by some filtering/data manipulation and finally update commands.Classic batch processing steps.
My question to you is…
Does AWS charge you for ‘availability time’ or 'usage time?
So if I have 4 work flows that execute in 10 minutes every night at 12:01am and I use these workflows only once every 24 hours at 12:01am, will AWS charge me for 24 hours or for the 10 minutes that the processes executed?
How do I reduce the ‘availability time’
I hope not but If it is ‘availability time’. Meaning whether I use it or not I will get charged, then I would be interested in knowing how if possible to start the ec2 instance of Knime, execute my workflows and stop it automatically.
Your suggestions, directions, tips are all welcome.
Please comment if you have worked with Knime with AWS.
