Guided Lab: Installing and configuring CloudWatch Agent

Description

CloudWatch Agent is a software package that you can install on your EC2 instances or on-premises servers for monitoring. It collects detailed system-level metrics such as CPU, memory, disk, and network usage. The agent also lets us publish custom metrics to monitor specific application needs, like tracking unique business or operational Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).

Prerequisites

This lab assumes you have experience creating EC2 instances and are familiar with its basic components.

If you find any gaps in your knowledge, consider taking the following labs:

  • Creating an Amazon EC2 instance (Linux)
  • Setting up a Web server on an EC2 instance

Objectives

In this lab, we’ll set up an EC2 instance to demonstrate how to install and configure CloudWatch Agent.
