EC2 monitor

Aws ec2

Reports network latency between servers, virtualization steal %, and EBS performance for EC2 & EBS.

Overview

This plugin monitors the health of AWS EC2 and EBS environments.

Gathers network latency between servers, virtualization steal %, EBS performance.

Notes

  • If steal time is consistently high, that means your instance is on a physical server that is likely over allocated. Create a new instance to hopefully move it to another physical node.
  • Suggested triggers at: ping times above 75ms and steal consistently above 20%

Dependencies

Requires the iostat command available through the sysstat package.
