Amazon EC2 ASG

The Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling Group (ASG) integration allows you to monitor your Amazon ASG service through FortiMonitor.

To add the Amazon ASG service to your FortiMonitor account:

  1. Follow the instructions provided in Connecting FortiMonitor and CloudWatch.

  2. Under Services, select ASG.

Metrics

The following table describes the metrics supported by FortiMonitor for ASG.

See https://docs.aws.amazon.com/autoscaling/ec2/userguide/as-instance-monitoring.html#as-group-metrics for more information.

Metric

Unit

Description

Total Instances

Count

The total number of instances in the Auto Scaling group. This metric identifies the number of instances that are in service, pending, and terminating.

Terminating Instances

Count

The number of instances that are in the process of terminating. This metric does not include instances that are in service or pending.

Standby Instances

Count

The number of instances that are in a Standby state. Instances in this state are still running but are not actively in service.

Pending Instances

Count

The number of instances that are pending. A pending instance is not yet in service. This metric does not include instances that are in service or terminating.

Desired Capacity

Count

The number of instances that the Auto Scaling group attempts to maintain.

Maximum Group Size

Count

The maximum size of the Auto Scaling group.

In Service Instances

Count

The number of instances that are running as part of the Auto Scaling group. This metric does not include instances that are pending or terminating.

Minimum Group Size

Count

The minimum size of the Auto Scaling group.

The following metrics are available for instances:

CPU Utilization

Percent

The percentage of allocated EC2 compute units that are currently in use on the instance.

Disk Read Operations

Bytes

Completed read operations from all instance store volumes available to the instance in a specified period of time.

Disk Write Operations

Bytes

Completed write operations to all instance store volumes available to the instance in a specified period of time.

Disk Reads

Bytes

Bytes read from all instance store volumes available to the instance.

Disk Writes

Bytes

Bytes written to all instance store volumes available to the instance.

Network In

Bytes

The number of bytes received on all network interfaces by the instance.

Network Out

Bytes

The number of bytes sent out on all network interfaces by the instance.

Status Check Failed (Any)

Count

Reports whether the instance has passed both the instance status check and the system status check in the last minute.

Status Check Failed (Instance)

Count

Reports whether the instance has passed the instance status check in the last minute.

Status Check Failed (System)

Count

Reports whether the instance has passed the system status check in the last minute.
