When you build, run, and scale an application, being able to monitor it and alert accordingly is a core need. At Engine Yard, side by side with our leading Platform offering, we do also include monitoring & alerting as well, with a Support Team backing it all up.
What do we watch for you
Our Platform monitors a series of indicators on each running instance, like CPU, memory, swap, and disk usage. Additionally, our Backend monitors events from AWS’s CloudWatch, including system level issues and CPU credits on t2 instances. When it comes to database instances, all of the above is included plus the monitoring of db specifics such as replication state, connectivity, connection limits, and the presence of long idle transactions.
