AWS

To provide visibility and insight into Amazon Web Services based cloud environments, Instana automatically discovers and monitors your AWS services. Our agent can itself be easily installed in your AWS infrastructure.

Amazon Web Services monitoring will:

  • Provide realtime insights into metadata, configuration, metrics
  • Watch the health of each service and alert on issues
  • Enable service discovery leveraging service information (see Service Configuration)
  • Place this insight within the context of the rest of your infrastructure/services

Agent Installation & Configuration

Learn more about getting started with the Instana AMI on our AWS Agent Installation docs. For each service you will need to add the required permissions noted below on the individual service pages. To exclude a service from monitoring just leave out the respective permission.
