Logstash Plugin – Use ElastiSearch with DynamoDB
Lately, AWS has been coming up with truly useful combinations by putting two or more services together with third party applications. This time, AWS has combined ElastiSearch functionality with DynamoDB using the DynamoDB plugin for Logstash.
Once you configure your Logstash to accept input data from DynamoDB tables and streams, it can then log changes you make to the tables and update your ElastiSearch cluster. The plugin can also scan tables and sync with your clusters, making it easy to make ElastiSearch queries.
You may download the plugin from the DynamoDB Community page, and get detailed directions from the accompanying documentation.

New Metrics for EC2 Container Service
Amazon EC2 Container Service, which allows you to build, run, and scale Docker-based applications, continues to improve by implementing new metrics.
The ECS Container Agent collects CPU and memory utilization data from each individual EC2 instance. The data is then normalized by a telemetry service, then transmitted to Amazon CloudWatch for viewing.
You can access the new metrics now at your Amazon Management Console. You can use these new metrics for any auto-scaling activities.
