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's integrations include an Amazon EFS integration for reporting your EFS data to New Relic. This document explains the integration's features, how to activate it, and what data can be reported.
If connected through a VPC, you can also use the EFS file system with your own on-premise servers, which allows you to share file systems across different applications hosted on hybrid solutions.
This integration collects the following Amazon EFS metrics:
Metric
Description
BurstCreditBalance
The number of burst credits that a file system has.
Burst credits allow a file system to burst to throughput levels above a file system’s baseline level for periods of time. For more information, see Throughput scaling in Amazon EFS.
The Minimum statistic is the smallest burst credit balance for any minute during the period. The Maximum statistic is the largest burst credit balance for any minute during the period. The Average statistic is the average burst credit balance during the period.
Units: Bytes
Valid statistics: Minimum, Maximum, Average
ClientConnections
The number of client connections to a file system. When using a standard client, there is one connection per mounted Amazon EC2 instance.
Note: To calculate the average ClientConnections for periods greater than one minute, divide the Sum statistic by the number of minutes in the period.
Units: Count of client connections
Valid statistics: Sum
DataReadIOBytes
The number of bytes for each file system read operation.
The Sum statistic is the total number of bytes associated with read operations. The Minimum statistic is the size of the smallest read operation during the period. The Maximum statistic is the size of the largest read operation during the period. The Average statistic is the average size of read operations during the period. The SampleCount statistic provides a count of read operations.
The number of bytes for each file system write operation.
The Sum statistic is the total number of bytes associated with write operations. The Minimum statistic is the size of the smallest write operation during the period. The Maximum statistic is the size of the largest write operation during the period. The Average statistic is the average size of write operations during the period. The SampleCount statistic provides a count of write operations.
Units:
Bytes are the units for the Minimum, Maximum, Average, and Sum statistics.
The Sum statistic is the total number of bytes associated with metadata operations. The Minimum statistic is the size of the smallest metadata operation during the period. The Maximum statistic is the size of the largest metadata operation during the period. The Average statistic is the size of the average metadata operation during the period. The SampleCount statistic provides a count of metadata operations.
Units:
Bytes are the units for the Minimum, Maximum, Average, and Sum statistics.
Shows how close a file system is to reaching the I/O limit of the General Purpose performance mode. If this metric is at 100% more often than not, consider moving your application to a file system using the Max I/O performance mode.
Note: This metric is only submitted for file systems using the General Purpose performance mode.
Units: Percent
PermittedThroughput
The maximum amount of throughput a file system is allowed, given the file system size and BurstCreditBalance. For more information, see Amazon EFS Performance.
The Minimum statistic is the smallest throughput permitted for any minute during the period. The Maximum statistic is the highest throughput permitted for any minute during the period. The Average statistic is the average throughput permitted during the period.
Units: Bytes per second
Valid statistics: Minimum, Maximum, Average
TotalIOBytes
The number of bytes for each file system operation, including data read, data write, and metadata operations.
The Sum statistic is the total number of bytes associated with all file system operations. The Minimum statistic is the size of the smallest operation during the period. The Maximum statistic is the size of the largest operation during the period. The Average statistic is the average size of an operation during the period. The SampleCount statistic provides a count of all operations.
Note: To calculate the average operations per second for a period, divide the SampleCount statistic by the number of seconds in the period. To calculate the average throughput (Bytes per second) for a period, divide the Sum statistic by the number of seconds in the period.
Units:
Bytes for Minimum, Maximum, Average, and Sum statistics.
