The OSS console is a web-based graphical user interface (GUI) platform used to manage OSS. The GUI provides an easy and convenient method to manage your OSS resources. This topic describes the overview page of the OSS console.

The OSS console includes the following pages:
  • Overview: displays an overview of your OSS buckets.
  • Buckets: displays a list of your buckets, including some information about the buckets such as configurations and storage capacity.
  • My OSS Paths: allows you to manually add OSS paths or configure a policy to automatically record recently accessed OSS paths to quickly access OSS resources that you need.
  • Cross-Region Replication (CRR): displays the cross-region replication rules that you have configured.
  • Tools: displays the recommended OSS tools that you can use to manage your OSS resources.
  • Data Import: displays the recommended services that you can use to migrate data to OSS in bulk.
  • Recommended Services: displays some of the common Alibaba Cloud services that you can use with OSS.

Overview page

The Overview page displays an overview of all your OSS buckets.
  • Basic Statistics
    In the Basic Statistics section, you can view the statistical values for Storage Usage, Traffic This Month, and Requests This Month of all buckets of your account.
    Notice The data on this page is not updated in real time. There is a latency of one to two hours. These statistics are for reference only.
    • Storage Usage: displays the storage usage of all buckets of your account.
      • Total (Excluding ECS Snapshots): displays the storage usage of all storage classes of buckets, excluding ECS snapshots.
      • Standard-Locally Redundant Storage: displays the storage usage of standard-locally redundant storage objects. For more information about storage classes, see Overview.
      • Standard-Zone-redundant Storage: displays the storage usage of standard-zone-redundant storage objects. If zone redundancy is enabled for a bucket, the redundancy type of objects in the bucket is zone redundancy. For more information, see Zone-redundant storage.
      • IA-Locally Redundant Storage: displays the storage usage of IA-locally redundant storage objects. The storage usage is displayed based on Actual Storage Usage and Billed Storage Usage.
        • Actual Storage Usage: displays the actual storage usage of IA objects.
        • Billed Storage Usage: displays the billed storage usage of IA objects. The minimum billable storage for IA objects is 64 KB. Objects less than 64 KB are charged as 64 KB. Therefore, if a bucket contains a large number of small objects, Billed Storage Usage may be greater than Actual Storage Usage. For more information, see IA.
      • IA-Zone-redundant Storage: displays the storage usage of IA-zone-redundant storage objects. If zone redundancy is enabled for a bucket, the redundancy type of objects in the bucket is zone redundancy. The storage usage is displayed based on Actual Storage Usage and Billed Storage Usage. The storage usage for IA-Zone-redundant Storage is calculated in the same way as that for IA-Locally Redundant Storage.
      • Archive: displays the storage usage of Archive objects. The storage usage is displayed based on Actual Storage Usage and Billed Storage Usage. The storage usage for Archive is calculated in the same way as that for IA-Locally Redundant Storage.
      • ECS Snapshots: displays the storage usage of ECS snapshots. For more information about the ECS snapshot function, see Overview.
    • Traffic This Month: displays the total traffic usage in the current month of all buckets of your account.
      • Outbound Traffic Over Public Network: displays the traffic generated when you browse or download OSS data over the Internet.
      • Inbound Traffic Over Public Network: displays the traffic generated when you upload data to OSS over the Internet.
      • CDN Back-to-Origin Traffic: displays the back-to-origin traffic generated when you browse or download OSS data over CDN.
    • Requests This Month: displays the total number of API requests received in the current month by all buckets of your account.
      • Read Request: displays all GET requests. For more information, see the "GET requests" section of the View resource usage topic.
      • Write Request: displays all PUT requests. For more information, see the "PUT requests" section of the View resource usage topic.
  • Basic Settings
    In the Basic Settings section, you can view the basic configurations of all buckets.
    • Versioning: When versioning is enabled for a bucket, data that is overwritten or deleted is saved as a previous version. Versioning allows you to restore objects in a bucket to any previous point in time, and protects your data from being accidentally overwritten or deleted. For more information about versioning, see Overview.
    • Transfer Acceleration: Transfer Acceleration helps you accelerate the access to OSS buckets and is ideal for scenarios such as remote data transmission and uploads and downloads of large objects of gigabytes or terabytes in size. For more information about transfer acceleration, see Transfer acceleration.
    • Cross-Region Replication (CRR): You can click View Details to view all buckets that have cross-region replication (CRR) configured and the configured CRR rules. You can click Configure in the Actions column corresponding to a bucket to go to the Cross-Region Replication (CRR) tab of the bucket. For more information about how to configure CRR, see Configure CRR.
    • Domain Names: You can click View Details to view all buckets that have custom domain names bound. You can click Configure in the Actions column corresponding to a bucket to go to the Domain Names tab of the bucket. For more information about how to bind a custom domain name, see Bind custom domain names.
    • Event Notification: You can click View Details to view all buckets that have event notifications configured and the configured event notification rules. You can click Configure in the Actions column corresponding to a bucket to go to the Event Notification tab of the bucket. For more information about how to configure event notifications, see Configure event notification.
    • Security Token (Authorization for RAM Users): Click RAM Console. In the Quick Security Token Configuration page that appears, click Start Authorization to create a RAM user and a role for STS authorization. For more information about STS authorization, see Access OSS with a temporary access credential provided by STS.
