AWS S3 Monitoring

Deprecated in Opsview Cloud and Opsview Monitor 6.5

Please use the latest AWS Opspack to monitor AWS S3

AWS Simple Storage Service (S3) is storage for the Internet. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers. AWS S3 has a simple web services interface that you can use to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. It gives any developer access to the same highly scalable, reliable, fast, inexpensive data storage infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of web sites. The service aims to maximize benefits of scale and to pass those benefits on to developers.

What You Can Monitor

Opsview's AWS S3 monitoring provides all of the latest metrics to track your S3 buckets. Service checks included in the Opspack allow for tracking of GET and PUT requests across each bucket. S3 Request metrics can help you easily identify operational issues.

Note: This Opspack knows when it was last run, so when testing the results in the troubleshoot section, you will need to wait a couple of minutes each time you recheck the results. The time frame that is searched for is based around the last time the Opspack ran, so running it too quickly will result in no data being found and the service check going into an unknown.

S3 Monitoring Setup and Configuration

To configure and utilize this Opspack, you need to add the 'Cloud - AWS - S3 CloudWatch' Opspack to your Opsview system.

Step 1: Add the host template

Add the Cloud - AWS - S3 CloudWatch Host Template to your Opsview Monitor host. If the resource you're monitoring has no hostname or public IP, then open the Advanced settings pane and change Host Check Command to Always assumed to be UP.

For more information, refer to Opsview Knowledge Center - Adding Host Templates to Hosts.

Step 2: Add and configure the variables for the host

Variable Description
AWS_CLOUDWATCH_AUTHENTICATION This variable allows users to setup aws credentials using file location or store them in the database
AWS_S3_BUCKET_NAME Bucket name to monitor from AWS

For more information, refer to Opsview Knowledge Center - Adding Variables to Hosts.

Step 3: Apply Changes and S3 bucket will now be monitored
