ManageEngine Applications Manager's AWS ECS monitoring capabilities enables you to monitor applications on the container, EC2 and ECS levels, in addition to monitoring the host infrastructure. It enables you to run containerized applications on AWS with confidence.
With Applications Manager's ECS monitoring tool, you can:
Applications Manager is a comprehensive ECS monitoring tool that proactively monitors critical AWS ECS KPIs and helps you optimize ECS performance.
With Applications Manager's ECS monitoring dashboard, get an overview of the number of active Services in your ECS environment. View the number of EC2 and Fargate services that are running and draining along withthe number of EC2 and Fargate Tasks that are active and pending all at a single glance.
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.
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.
Although AWS CloudWatch provides native monitoring capabilities, it can be hard to set up and can get expensive. Applications Manager's cloud monitoring tool is not only cost effective but is also easy to set up with the help of automated discovery. No need to deploy or maintain agents.
Applications Manager can monitor various services in your AWS accounts such as EC2, RDS, Lambda, and more. It can also monitor your multi-cloud and hybrid cloud infrastructure, application performance and end user experience from a single console. AWS Elastic Container Service monitoring is a part of Applications Manager's AWS monitoring solution.
Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) is a container orchestration service that supports Docker containers and allows you to easily run and scale containerized applications on AWS.
Both the infrastructure on which the ECS instances are deployed and the ECS deployments has to be monitored thoroughly in order to ensure the proper running and allocation of tasks and services. If they aren't monitored constantly, the risk of encountering insufficent resources and performance errors is high.
A single miscalculated configuration in your service or container definition can cause an application performance issue. With Applications Manager's AWS ECS monitoring, you can observe Amazon ECS metrics such as system utilization stats from clusters, container instances, services and other ECS components for both EC2 and Fargate launch type. Analyzing AWS ECS monitoring metrics allows you to run containerized applications on AWS at scale with confidence.
Applications Manager uses ECS Service APIs and CloudWatch APIs to fetch ECS configuration and performance metrics. No, you don't need to install an agent or collector on your ECS host.
Here are some use cases that you can address with Applications Manager's ECS monitoring in place:
The insight offered by CloudWatch is basic and at the surface level. You will have difficulty correlating the metrics. As you can see above, Applications Manager can go several levels deeper and provide better correlation.
