AWS Elastic Beanstalk Monitoring


AWS Elastic Beanstalk - Overview

AWS Elastic Beanstalk is an orchestration service from Amazon which is used for deploying and scaling applications that orchestrates various AWS services like EC2, S3, Simple Notification Service (SNS), CloudWatch, AutoScaling, and Elastic Load Balancers (ELB). With Elastic Beanstalk, you can deploy and manage applications in the AWS cloud without having to learn about the infrastructure that is needed for those applications.

Monitored Parameters

Go to the Monitors Category View by clicking the Monitors tab. Click on the Elastic Beanstalk instance available under Amazon in the Cloud Apps section. Displayed is the Amazon Elastic Beanstalk bulk configuration view distributed into three tabs:

  • Availability tab gives the availability history for the past 24 hours or 30 days.
  • Performance tab gives the health status and events for the past 24 hours or 30 days.
  • List view tab enables you to perform bulk admin configurations.

By clicking a monitor from the list, you'll be taken to the AWS Elastic Beanstalk dashboard. It has 7 tabs:
