Linux monitoring scripts for CloudWatch

Project Description
cloudwatch-mon-scripts-python
=============================

[![PyPI version](https://badge.fury.io/py/cloudwatchmon.svg)](https://badge.fury.io/py/cloudwatchmon)

Linux monitoring scripts for CloudWatch.


Requirements
------------

- Python >= 2.6
- Boto >= 2.33.0


Installation
------------

Optionally create a virtual environment and activate it. Then just run
`pip install cloudwatchmon`. Install the scripts in /usr/local/bin folder.

For script usage, run:

mon-put-instance-stats.py --help


Examples
--------

To perform a simple test run without posting data to Amazon CloudWatch

mon-put-instance-stats.py --mem-util --verify --verbose

Report memory and disk space utilization to Amazon CloudWatch

mon-put-instance-stats.py --mem-util --disk-space-util --disk-path=/

To get utilization statistics for the last 12 hours

mon-get-instance-stats.py --recent-hours=12


Configuration
-------------

To allow an EC2 instance to read and post metric data to Amazon CloudWatch,
this IAM policy is required:

{
"Statement": [
{
"Action": [
"cloudwatch:ListMetrics",
"cloudwatch:GetMetricStatistics",
"cloudwatch:PutMetricData",
"autoscaling:DescribeAutoScalingInstances"
],
"Effect": "Allow",
"Resource": "*"
}
]
}

If the policy is configured via an IAM role that is assigned to the EC2
server this script runs on, you're done.

Otherwise you can configure the policy for a user account and export
the credentials before running the script:

export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=[Your AWS Access Key ID]
export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=[Your AWS Secret Access Key]

Third option is to create a _~/.boto_ file with this content:

[Credentials]
aws_access_key_id = Your AWS Access Key ID
aws_secret_access_key = Your AWS Secret Access Key
