Monitoring Amazon FSx for OpenZFS

Monitoring is an important part of maintaining the reliability, availability, and performance of Amazon FSx and your other AWS solutions. Collect monitoring data from all parts of your AWS solution so that you can more easily debug a multi-point failure if one occurs.

AWS provides the following monitoring tools to watch Amazon FSx for OpenZFS, report when something is wrong, and take action automatically when appropriate:

  • Amazon CloudWatch – Monitors your AWS resources and the applications that you run on AWS in real time. You can collect and track metrics, create customized dashboards, and set alarms that notify you when a specified metric reaches a threshold that you specify. For example, you can have CloudWatch track storage capacity or other metrics for your Amazon FSx instances and automatically launch new instances when needed. For more information, see the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide.

  • AWS CloudTrail – Captures API calls and related events made by or on behalf of your AWS account and delivers the log files to an Amazon S3 bucket that you specify. You can identify which users and accounts called AWS, the source IP address from which the calls were made, and when the calls occurred. For more information, see the AWS CloudTrail User Guide.
