Maps page in the EC2 Instances view
The Maps page in the EC2 Instances view provides a graphical representation of AWS cloud capacity.
To access this page, in the TrueSight console, select Capacity > Views > Cloud > AWS > EC2 Instances and click the Maps tab.
The page displays following metrics for the cloud. All values are calculated over the last full month, and the current month.
- CPU Utilization
- Memory Utilization
The parent entity and the child entities in the Maps page are the EC2 instances.
This representation is implemented by using a data visualization tool called Tree Maps. The Tree Map view displays system entities in a hierarchical order by using a series of clustered rectangles, which together represent a whole system.
You can easily and quickly view the details of an entity and drill down to view the child entity.
For example, in the Maps page, click the entity (specific cell in the map).
A Details window opens that lists the Name, Type, Utilization (%) and Size of the entity, along with Related Information links.
In the Details window, click Drill Down.
The child entity is displayed. The bread crumbs on top of the map indicate the entity you are currently viewing.
For more information about using the view, see Reading a tree map view.
