Amazon EBS monitoring integration

Important

Enable the AWS CloudWatch Metric Streams integration to monitor all CloudWatch metrics from your AWS services, including custom namespaces. Individual integrations are no longer our recommended option.

New Relic infrastructure integrations include an Amazon EBS integration for reporting your EBS data to New Relic. Here we explain how to activate our integration and what data can be reported.

Features

Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) provides block level storage volumes for your Amazon EC2 instances. With New Relic's EBS integration, you'll be able to monitor writes per volume, volume counts, configuration options, and more. You'll be able to create custom charts of your data and create alert conditions based on changes in EBS data or configuration.

Activate integration

To enable this integration follow standard procedures to Connect AWS services to New Relic.

Configuration and polling

You can change the polling frequency and filter data using configuration options.

Default polling information for the Amazon EBS integration:

  • New Relic polling interval: 15 minutes
  • Amazon CloudWatch data interval: 1 minute or 5 minutes, depending on volume type

Find and use data

To find this integration's data, go to one.newrelic.com > Infrastructure > AWS and select one of the Amazon EBS integration links.

You can query and explore your data using the BlockDeviceSample event type, with a provider value of EbsVolume.

For more on how to find and use integration data, see Understand integration data.
