View Your Fleets

You can view information on all the fleets created to host your games on Amazon GameLift under your AWS account. Fleets shown include only those created in the selected region. From the Fleets page, you can create a new fleet or view additional detail on one selected fleet. A Fleet detail page contains usage information and metrics; it also lets you view and edit fleet configuration settings, create or remove the fleet, and access the fleet's game session and player session data.

To view the Fleets page, choose Fleets from the Amazon GameLift console's menu bar.

The Fleets page displays the following summary information:

  • Status – The status of the fleet, which can be one of these states: New, Downloading, Building, and Active. A fleet must be in Active status to be able to host game sessions and allow player connections.

  • Fleet name – Friendly name given to the fleet.

  • EC2 type – The Amazon EC2 instance type, which determines the computing capacity of fleet's instances.

  • OS – Operating system on each instances in the fleet. A fleet's OS is determined by the build deployed to it.

  • Active – The number of EC2 instances in use for the fleet.

  • Desired – The number of EC2 instances Amazon GameLift should maintain in the fleet. This value is configurable (within service limits). Amazon GameLift starts or terminates instances as needed to maintain the desired number of instances.

  • Active game sessions – The number of game sessions currently running in the fleet. The data is delayed five minutes.

  • Player sessions – The number of players connected to game sessions in the fleet. The data is delayed five minutes.

  • Uptime – The total length of time the fleet has been running.

  • Date created – The date and time the fleet was created.
