We're excited to announce another little AWS monitoring
enhancement - threshold and alerting support for Amazon EBS volumes.
With this new addition, you can now monitor performance metrics like
bandwidth, throughput, latency and queue length for all supported
volume types to detect storage issues and fine tune EBS usage.
Before, the data points collected from the Cloudwatch API for your
EBS volumes were only visualized as time series graphs. Now with
support for alerts, you can configure thresholds for all the key
operational attributes, set up multiple alarm conditions and advanced
alerting strategies, at no additional cost.
Existing users, setting up thresholds for your Elastic Block Store
volumes is quite simple. All you need to do is access the same
threshold profile that you have assigned to your EC2 instance; the
supported EBS volume attributes are listed below the instance attributes.
If you have attached multiple EBS volumes on the same instance, then
you can configure and assign individual threshold profiles for each
volume by accessing the Volume tab in the said EC2 instance
Feel free to contact us with any questions, comments, if you have
any suggestions or feedback, please post it in our community.
