Purchase Firewall Analyzer AMI from here.
Note: When you access the Firewall Analyzer using the public IP/DNS address, note that the "Public IP/DNS address" changes when the instance is stopped/terminated.

Hence it is recommended to use an elastic IP address for seamless monitoring . For more details on Elastic IP address click here.
