The following table describes the metrics supported by Panopta for EC2.

See https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/viewing_metrics_with_cloudwatch.html for more information.

Metric

Unit

Description

CPU Utilization

Percent

The percentage of allocated EC2 compute units that are currently in use on the instance.

Disk read ops

Count

Completed read operations from all instance store volumes available to the instance in a specified period of time.

Disk write ops

Count

Completed write operations to all instance store volumes available to the instance in a specified period of time.

Disk read bytes

Bytes

Bytes read from all instance store volumes available to the instance.

Disk write bytes

Bytes

Bytes written to all instance store volumes available to the instance.

Network bytes in

Bytes

The number of bytes received on all network interfaces by the instance.

Network bytes out

Bytes

The number of bytes sent out on all network interfaces by the instance.

Network packets in

Count

The number of packets received on all network interfaces by the instance.

Network packets out

Count

The number of packets sent out on all network interfaces by the instance.

CPU Credit Usage

Credits (vCPU-minutes)

The number of CPU credits spent by the instance for CPU utilization.

CPU Credit Balance

Credits (vCPU-minutes)

The number of earned CPU credits that an instance has accrued since it was launched or started.

CPU Surplus Credit Balance

Credits (vCPU-minutes)

The number of surplus credits that have been spent by an unlimited instance when its CPUCreditBalance value is zero.

CPU Surplus Credits Charged

Credits (vCPU-minutes)

The number of spent surplus credits that are not paid down by earned CPU credits, and which thus incur an additional charge.

Status Check Failed

Count

Reports whether the instance has passed both the instance status check and the system status check in the last minute.

Status Check Failed Instance

Count

Reports whether the instance has passed the instance status check in the last minute.

Status Check Failed System 

Count

Reports whether the instance has passed the system status check in the last minute.
