Install the Amazon ECS App and view the Dashboards

The Sumo Logic App for Amazon ECS includes several Dashboards that allow you instant access to information about your EC2 containers.

Install the Sumo Logic App

Now that you have set up collection for Amazon ECS, install the Sumo Logic App for Amazon ECS to use the pre-configured searches and dashboards that provide visibility into your environment for real-time analysis of overall usage.

To install the app:

  1. Select App Catalog, search for and select the app, and click Add to Library. (In the classic UI, click Library, click Apps, select the app, and click Install. If you don't find the app under Apps, it might be a preview app. Try clicking Preview to find the app.)
  2. Click Preview Dashboards if you'd like to see a preview of the dashboards included with the app before installing.
  3. In the Install Application dialog box, select the installation path (the default is the Personal folder in the library), or click New Folder to add a new folder.
  4. Select either of these options for the log data source.
  • Choose Select from Existing Source Categories, and select the source catalog from the Source Category list.
  • Choose Enter a Custom Data Filter and enter a custom source category beginning with an underscore. Example: (_sourceCategory=MyCategory).
  1. Click Add to Library.

Once an app is installed, it will appear in your Personal folder, or other folder that you specified. From here, you can share it with your organization. See Welcome to the New Library for information on working with the library in the new UI.

Panels will start to fill automatically. It's important to note that each Panel slowly fills with data matching the time range query and received since the Panel was created. Results won't immediately be available, but with a bit of time, you'll see full graphs and maps. 

Dashboards

Amazon ECS - Overview

This Dashboards displays information in metrics line charts on a timeline for either the last 15 minutes, or the last six hours.

Panels include:

  • Cluster Count.
  • Service Count.
  • Count of Services by Cluster.
  • Average CPU Utilization by Service Name.
  • Average Memory Utilization by Service Name.

Amazon ECS - CPU and Memory Reservation - Cluster

Definitions:

  • CPU Reservation. The percentage of CPU units that are reserved by running tasks/services in the cluster.
  • Memory Reservation. The percentage of memory that is reserved by running tasks/services in the cluster.

For more information, see http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonECS...ce_utilization

This Dashboards displays information in metrics line charts on a timeline for the last 24 hours.

Panels include:

  • Average CPU Reservation by Cluster.
  • Average Memory Reservation by Cluster.
  • Maximum CPU Reservation by Cluster.
  • Maximum Memory Reservation by Cluster.

Amazon ECS - CPU Utilization - Cluster and Service

Definitions:

  • CPU Utilization. The percentage of CPU units that are used in the cluster or service.
  • Cluster CPU Utilization. Metrics that are filtered by ClusterName without ServiceName. This is measured as the total CPU units in use by Amazon ECS tasks on the cluster, divided by the total CPU units that were registered for all of the container instances in the cluster.
  • Service CPU Utilization. Metrics that are filtered by ClusterName and ServiceName. This is measured as the total CPU units in use by the tasks that belong to the service, divided by the total number of CPU units that are reserved for the tasks that belong to the service.

This Dashboards displays information in metrics line charts on a timeline for the last 24 hours.

Panels include:

  • CPU Utilization by Service.
  • CPU Utilization by Cluster.
  • CPU Utilization by Service and Cluster.

Amazon ECS - Memory Utilization - Cluster and Service

Definitions:

  • Memory Utilization. The percentage of memory that is used in the cluster or service. Cluster memory utilization (metrics that are filtered by ClusterName without ServiceName) is measured as the total memory in use by Amazon ECS tasks on the cluster, divided by the total amount of memory that was registered for all of the container instances in the cluster.
  • Service Memory Utilization. Metrics that are filtered by ClusterName and ServiceName. This is measured as the total memory in use by the tasks that belong to the service, divided by the total memory that is reserved for the tasks that belong to the service.
  • Unit. Percent.

This Dashboards displays information in metrics line charts on a timeline for the last 24 hours.

Panels include:

  • Memory Utilization by Service.
  • Memory Utilization by Cluster.
  • Memory Utilization by Service and Cluster.

Amazon ECS - Events

Events by Type. Displays events by type in a table chart including details on event name and count for the last 24 hours.

ECS Events Over Time. Shows ECS events over time in a line chart on a timeline for the last 24 hours.

Location of Events. Performs a geo lookup operation and displays the location of ECS events on a map of the world for the last 24 hours.

Resources Created. Provides information on resources created in a column chart for the last 24 hours.

Deleted Resources. Displays details about deleted resources in a column chart for the last 24 hours.

Resource Creation Over Time. Shows information on resources created in a column chart for the last 24 hours.

Deleted Resources Over Time. Displays deleted resources in a column chart for the last 24 hours.

RegisterContainerInstance Event. Provides information on RegisterContainerInstance events in a table chart for the last 24 hours.

Top 10 IAM Users. Shows information on the top 10 IAM user in a column chart for the last 24 hours.
