IaaS & PaaS > Amazon AWS Monitoring with the Monitoring Software

AWS logo

At ServersCheck, Amazon AWS is the infrastructure provider for our Cloud Platform. For our own monitoring we wanted to integrate Amazon CloudWatch data in the monitoring so that our engineers can monitor our entire infrastructure from one single application. That's how the Iaas / PaaS feature was created and is now part of the ServersCheck Monitoring Software.

AWS monitoring is easy as 1-2-3: simply provide a read only Access & Secret key for your Amazon AWS account and the data collection starts automatically. You can define alerts on any of the EC2, ELB or RDS metrics collected by the software.

The EC2 monitoring will also check for underutilized instances, if all your public IP's have been allocated, if you have unused or expiring reserved instances and more...
