Hello geeks!

 

I wanted to share a script i use on a daily basis that i think some of you have use of.

 

What this script/runbook achieves:

This script retrieves all resources in a resourcegroup, sums up the values of each resource, and emails the total cost via gmail SMTP.

 

What i get in the mail once a day:

 

test2-1-624x196
