Collection of operational metrics - AWS Perspective

Collection of operational metrics

This solution includes an option to send anonymous operational metrics to AWS. We use this data to better understand how customers use this solution and related services and products. When activated, the following information is collected and sent to AWS:

  • Solution ID: SO0075 SO0075a SO0075b SO0075c

  • Unique ID (UUID): Randomly generated, unique identifier for each AWS Perspective deployment

  • Timestamp: Data-collection timestamp

  • Login Attempts: Increments on each log in and is sent back anonymously

  • Instance Data: Count of the state and type of instances that are managed by the EC2 Scheduler in each AWS Region

Example data:

Running: {t2.micro: 2}, {m3.large:2} Stopped: {t2.large: 1}, {m3.xlarge:3}
