GCP Thrifty Mod

Be Thrifty on GCP! This mod checks for unused resources and opportunities to optimize your spend on GCP.


GCP provides on-demand cloud computing platforms and APIs to authenticated customers on a metered pay-as-you-go basis.

Steampipe is an open source CLI to instantly query cloud APIs using SQL.

Steampipe Mods are collections of named queries, and codified controls that can be used to test current configuration of your cloud resources against a desired configuration.
