How to Monitor Amazon Web Services EC2 VM Resources

To monitor VM resources from an Amazon EC2 subscription, it must be added to Netreo (only Netreo SuperAdmins can do this).

  1. Log in to Netreo as a SuperAdmin and open the Cloud Monitoring Administration page (Administration > Modules > Cloud Monitoring).
  2. On the Cloud Monitoring Administration page, in the Amazon Web Services section, click the Add AWS button.
  3. In the dialog that appears, fill out the required fields using the information from your Amazon subscription.

    • NAME
      This field is used for labeling within Netreo. The value is arbitrary and may be anything you decide.
    • ACCESS KEY ID
      Enter the key from your subscription.
    • SECRET ACCESS KEY
      Enter the secret key from your subscription.
    • DEFAULT REGION
      Select a region that most closely identifies your location, or the region specified by Amazon.
    • SIGNATURE VERSION
      Select the signature version to authenticate your AWS API requests.

      • For information on version 2, see here.
      • For information on version 4, see here.
  4. Click Save.

Netreo is now configured to monitor your AWS EC2 subscription for new resources, which it will do roughly every five minutes. When a new resource is detected—if the device is ping-able and responds to the credentials configured in Netreo—it will be automatically added and reported on as would any other device in your infrastructure.
