I'm curious if anyone has an idea why AWS Trusted Advisor sets their "low EC2 utilization" check to look for:
the daily CPU utilization was 10% or less and network I/O was 5 MB or less on 4 or more days
Specifically, why would they have network I/O 5mb or less on 4 or more days? Why not the whole duration they look over (2 weeks)? Why not 2 days? Do instances typically run some sort of small update every 5 days or something?
