Add the ability to monitor EC2 instance memory.
- [Instructor] With an understanding…of why it is sometimes necessary…to publish custom metrics into CloudWatch,…let's jump in and start monitoring the memory…on our Minecraft server.…To set some context, let's quickly recap.…We have an EC2 instance…with Amazon Linux as its operating system.…That instance is running Minecraft.…Minecraft is a Java application whose memory utilization…is affected by the number of people connected to the server.…The more people there are on the server,…the more memory is used.…
With that understanding, I'm going to proceed…and assign an identity and access management or IAM role…to allow this instance to publish metrics to CloudWatch.…Once that has been setup, I'll install a software agent…on the EC2 instance to collect memory metrics.…That software agent will then be configured…to publish the metrics it collects to CloudWatch.…This will help us monitor…the health of the Minecraft server.…We already know that the four most basic performance metrics…to monitor on a server are CPU, network, disk, and memory.…
