AWS EC2: Instance Credit Usage

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: AWS

This check monitors the number of CPU credits spent by the instance for CPU utilization and the number of earned CPU credits that an instance has accrued since it was launched or started. To make this check work you have to configure the related special agent Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Lower default levels for balance are set to 10, 5. These are configurable.


One service is created if all required metrics (CPUCreditUsage, CPUCreditBalance) are given.
