Graph AWS resources in Neptune

Project description


Community Supported GitHub

Python 3.8

Altimeter is a system to graph and scan AWS resources across multiple AWS Organizations and Accounts.

Altimeter generates RDF files which can be loaded into a triplestore such as AWS Neptune for querying.



pip install altimeter


Altimeter's behavior is driven by a toml configuration file. A few sample configuration files are included in the conf/ directory:

  • current_single_account.toml - scans the current account - this is the account for which the environment's currently configured AWS CLI credentials are.
  • current_master_multi_account.toml - scans the current account and attempts to scan all organizational subaccounts - this configuration should be used if you are scanning all accounts in an organization. To do this the currently configured AWS CLI credentials should be pointing to an AWS Organizations master account.

To scan a subset of regions, set the region list parameter regions in the scan section to a list of region names.

Generating the Graph

Assuming you have configured AWS CLI credentials (see, run:

altimeter <path-to-config>

This will scan all resources in regions specified in the config file.

The full path to the generated RDF file will printed, for example:

Created /tmp/altimeter/20191018/1571425383/graph.rdf

This RDF file can then be loaded into a triplestore such as Neptune or Blazegraph for querying.
