Monitor cluster resource stats.

Keep an eye on the instances running on the ECS cluster. When it comes to ECS clusters, resource reservation and utilization are the most important parameters. Applications Manager's AWS ECS monitor provides extensive details on resource stats such as CPU and memory that is reserved and used, file system usage, network traffic rate, and more. Understanding memory utilization can prevent memory contentions and ensure optimum operformance of your deployments.

You can even track Disk I/O and Network I/O metrics to pinpoint misconfigurations and utilize storage efficiently.

Get insights about Tasks.

A task listens to instructions from ECS and executes them for launching, terminating, and configuring containers. Applications Manager's Amazon ECS monitoring tool allows you to monitor ECS performance metrics like Health Status, Last Status, Desired Status, connectivity details, resource details, and configuration information of the tasks. Isolate tasks that have stopped running and identify the root cause to resolve issues with ease.
