EC2 Instance page in the Data Explorer view

The Data Explorer view for AWS shows the behavior of instance specific performance metrics. 

To access this page, in the TrueSight console, click Capacity > Views > Cloud > AWS > Data Explorer. By default, the EC2 Instance page is displayed.

From the EC2 Instance filter, select the instance that you want to view data for. You can configure the time filter and other page level filters according to your requirements. For more details, see Using filtering options in views on the TrueSight Console.

The metrics are categorized based on different profiles and are grouped under separate tabs. Click a tab to view the charts for that profile.
