    A company has a cloud architecture that is composed of Linux and Windows EC2 instances that process high volumes of financial data 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To ensure high availability of the systems, the Solutions Architect needs to create a solution that allows them to monitor the memory and disk utilization metrics of all the instances.

    Which of the following is the most suitable monitoring solution to implement?

    <ul data-question_id=”7218″ data-type=”single”>

  • Use the default CloudWatch configuration to EC2 instances where the memory and disk utilization metrics are already available. Install the AWS Systems Manager (SSM) Agent to all the EC2 instances
  • Install the CloudWatch agent to all the EC2 instances that gather the memory and disk utilization data. View the custom metrics in the Amazon CloudWatch console.
  • Enable the Enhanced Monitoring option in EC2 and install CloudWatch agent to all the EC2 instances to be able to view the memory and disk utilization in the CloudWatch dashboard.

  • Use Amazon Inspector and install the Inspector agent to all EC2 instances.
  • As per AWS website it is:


    The CloudWatch monitoring scripts are deprecated. We recommend that you use the CloudWatch agent to collect metrics and logs. For more information, see Collect Metrics from Amazon EC2 Instances and On-Premises Servers with the CloudWatch Agent in the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide.

    If you are still migrating from the deprecated monitoring scripts to the agent, and require information about the monitoring scripts, see Deprecated: Collect metrics using the CloudWatch monitoring scripts.

    Please, correct me if I’m wrong.

    Hello Xuzito,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I’m not sure I understand the problem here. There was no mention of CloudWatch monitoring scripts in the option. Could you clarify your question?
