QuestionHow do you minimize risk of using AWS visualization tools Pin

I am a AWS newbe. I am mucking about with an AWS playtime account, tied to my personal credit card, my costs last month did not exceed $20. My network topologies though seem to quickly get out of hand and am having a hard time visualizing them. Again this is just so I can become familiar with this stuff, playtime as I have said.

Several tools are available to allow me to do visualization, one that I'm interested in is in beta and is based overseas, well actually most of the free ones are (not in friendly countries either). There is one that costs, it is a release version but their visualizations don't look like the Amazon network diagrams you see in AWS help, in addition I have to contact a sales rep to get pricing (no prices on the menu if you will).

The problem is you have to give the visualization people your AWS account info so the diagrams can be generated/ or toplogy generated from the diagram you draw. I hesitate to do that even with a play time account, lest in an hour my AWS account gets abused by the visualization vendor in ways I'm just beginning to imagine.

I have noticed that AWS has a cloud monitor that sends an email if you exceed <edit> a costing </edit> threshold. Hmmm... that's next to worthless.

Anyone run into this and have thoughts on this?
