You can use Amazon EC2 to launch as many or as few virtual servers as you need, configure security and networking, and manage storage.

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) provides scalable computing capacity in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. You can use Amazon EC2 to launch as many or as few virtual servers as you need, configure security and networking, and manage storage. 

The Sumo Logic App for Host Metrics (EC2) allows you to collect your EC2 instance metrics and display them using predefined dashboards. The App provides dashboards to display analysis of EC2 instance metrics for CPU, memory, disk, network, and TCP. Also, it provides detailed insights into all cloudtrail audit events associated with EC2 instances and specifically helps identify changes, errors, and user activities.

Metrics Types 

Host metrics are gathered by the open-source SIGAR library. The metrics that are collected are described in Host Metrics for Installed Collectors
