after some days. The user wants to increase the limit from $200 to $400? What should the user

AWS CloudWatch supports enabling the billing alarm on the total AWS charges. The estimated
charges are calculated and sent several times daily to CloudWatch in the form of metric data. This
data will be stored for 14 days. This data also includes the estimated charges for every service in
AWS used by the user, as well as the estimated overall AWS charges. If the user wants to
increase the limit, the user can modify the alarm and specify a new threshold.
