AWS - ELB Opspack

With our Opsview Monitor AWS ELB Opspack, you can easily and affordably monitor Amazon Web Services ELB (Elastic Load Balancing).

What You Can Monitor

Opsview Monitor has multiple Opspacks available for AWS monitoring. Those currently available include packs for:

  • EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud)
  • ELB (Elastic Load Balancing)
  • RDS (Relational Database Service) There are also checks for the online status of all the Amazon Web Services in all 12 of their operated geographical regions. In addition to deploying Opsview to the cloud, you can now monitor your cloud services. For information about setting up the AWS Opspack in Opsview Monitor, check out our Knowledge Center.

  • mkdir /etc/cloutomate
  • ssh-keygen -f /etc/cloutomate/cloutomate.pem (make sure to enter a blank password when prompted.)
  • ruby /opt/opsview/monitoringscripts/etc/plugins/cloud-aws/encrypt_aws_credentials.rb -A (your Amazon access key ID) -S (your Amazon secret key) -f /opt/opsview/monitoringscripts/etc/plugins/cloud-aws/aws_credentials.cfg (Note: Your Amazon access key ID and secret key are managed in the 'Security Credentials' area in your account's dropdown menu.)
  • chown -R opsview:opsview /etc/cloutomate
  • chown opsview:opsview /opt/opsview/monitoringscripts/etc/plugins/cloud-aws/aws_credentials.cfg
