Pre-Requisites for Monitoring the AWS Cloud
The following pre-requisites are to be satisfied while you start monitoring the AWS EC2 Cloud models:
- Since the AWS Cloud can be monitored only in an agentless manner, at least one remote agent should be configured in the environment;
- The system hosting the remote agent should be configured with Internet connectivity;
- You should buy the capability to launch and monitor EC2 instances on the cloud;
- Some tests require the AWS CloudWatch service to be enabled. This is a paid web service that enables you to monitor, manage, and publish various metrics, as well as configure alarm actions based on data from metrics. For enabling this service, you need to pay CloudWatch fees. Refer to the AWS web site for the fee details.
Note that the aforesaid pre-requisites apply to both the AWS Cloud models that eG Enterprise offers.
