EC2 Run Command has proven itself extremely useful for running system administration tasks over large numbers of EC2 instances. You can easily create users and groups, scan for and install Windows updates, manage services, and many other tasks on a large scale.
As such you can create a run command that gathers metrics on your instances and save the data on S3. Your notification system then scans the results and notifies you if something is wrong.
This feature is available now except in Asia Pacific (Mumbai) and AWS GovCloud (US) regions. To set up a similar notification system, contact our AWS cloud experts at PolarSeven today.
