AWS views enable you to view and manage the capacity of entities such as EC2 instances and EBS volumes in your business service environment. They provide an overview of available capacity, utilization, trends, and residual capacity in terms of CPU, memory, and datastore utilization for each entity.
You can access the views only after the administrator has completed the following tasks:
If you are new to views in the TrueSight console, first see Accessing and using capacity views in the TrueSight console.
Certified data source
The certified data source for these views is Amazon Web Services - AWS API Extractor.
You must configure and run this ETL module to import data into the view.
If you are importing data from an ETL module other than the certified data source, then ensure that you have all the metrics populated in the ETL module so that the view shows the data.
Metrics collected for additional Amazon Web Services monitoring scripts
Some metrics in the AWS views are available only when the monitoring scripts for Amazon EC2 instances are executed. For more information, see Entities, lookup information, and metrics for AWS API Extractor.
