Free EC2 Health Monitor tool – Features
ManageEngine Free EC2 Health Monitor tool helps system administrator or developer to monitor resource utilization of EC2 instances. This tool can connect to the Amazon EC2 services, monitor live feed data and historical data of Amazon EC2 instances.
ManageEngine's Free EC2 Health Monitor tool monitors the following performance metrics of Amazon EC2 instances.
CPU Utilization (in Percentage)
The percentage of allocated EC2 compute units that are currently in use on the instance. This metric identifies the processing power required to run an application upon a selected instance..
Network In (in Bytes)
The number of bytes received on all network interfaces by the instance. This metric identifies the volume of incoming network traffic to an application on a single instance..
Network Out (in Bytes)
The number of bytes sent out on all network interfaces by the instance. This metric identifies the volume of outgoing network traffic to an application on a single instance.
Disk Read (in Bytes)
Bytes read from all disks available to the instance. This metric is used to determine the volume of the data the application reads from the hard disk of the instance. This can be used to determine the speed of the application..
Disk Write (in Bytes)
Bytes written to all disks available to the instance. This metric is used to determine the volume of the data the application writes onto the hard disk of the instance. This can be used to determine the speed of the application.
In this data retrieval mode, this tool retrieves the data of EC2 instance from amazon at every data fetch interval (e.g., 30 seconds by default). It also provides the option to change the data fetch interval value. This tool renders the past one hour data graphically.
This tool provides the option to select the start date, end date, start time and end time to retrieve the details of Amazon EC2 instance. It represents statistics graphically. User can view the resource utilization graph for a selected period.
Tool displays all the instances in the tree view. User can select any instance in the tree view. It displays the details given below.
InstanceID of the Amazon machine instance.
It displays the status of the Amazon Machine Instance i.e., whether it is running, stopped or pending state.
This is an additional parameter which allows fine grained monitoring of AMI instances.
It has two modes. One mode is "basic" and the other is "detailed". Detailed - monitoring mode means "CloudWatch is enabled" and data can be monitored every minute (the minimum time interval for retrieval is one minute). Basic -monitoring mode means, CloudWatch is not enabled and the minimum time interval for successive data retrieval is five minutes. Even if we specify a lesser time interval, it will be ignored
Availability zone is the geographical region in which instance is located.
Displays the processor details of instances.
Displays the IP address of the instances.
