Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) is a scalable container management service that makes it easy to run, stop, and manage Docker containers on Amazon EC2 clusters. New Relic's on-host ECS integration instruments the underlying container instance (EC2 launch type) and the container layer by reporting metrics from ECS objects. The integration gives you insight into your ECS container instances, tasks, services and containers.
View your data in pre-built dashboards for immediate insight into your ECS environment.
Create your own queries and charts in the Chart builder from automatically reported data.
Create alert conditions on ECS data.
Explore entities using the entity explorer.
New Relic also offers an ECS cloud integration, which reports a different data set than our on-host integration. For complete ECS monitoring, we recommend enabling both integrations.
Compatibility and requirements
- Amazon ECS container agent 1.21.0 or higher.
- Windows not supported.
- This integration uses our Infrastructure agent and our Docker instrumentation: applicable requirements and restrictions of those systems apply.
