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.
With New Relic's integration for monitoring AWS Elastic File System (EFS), you can monitor EFS file system size, read/write operations, I/O capacity, throughput, and more. AWS integration data is also available for analysis, queries, and chart creation in New Relic One.
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.
To enable this integration follow standard procedures to Connect AWS services to New Relic.
You can change the polling frequency and filter data using configuration options.
Default polling information for the Amazon EFS integration:
- New Relic polling interval: 5 minutes
- Amazon CloudWatch data interval: 1 minute or 5 minutes
To find this integration's data, go to one.newrelic.com > Infrastructure > AWS and select one of the Amazon EFS integration links.
For more on how to find and use integration data, see Understand integration data.
This integration collects the following Amazon EFS metrics:
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 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
Units: Count of client connections
The number of bytes for each file system read operation.
The number of bytes for each file system write operation.
The number of bytes for each metadata operation.
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.
The maximum amount of throughput a file system is allowed, given the file system size and
Units: Bytes per second
The number of bytes for each file system operation, including data read, data write, and metadata operations.
Note: To calculate the average operations per second for a period, divide the
Inventory data provides information about the service's state and configuration. For more about inventory data, see Understand and use data.
