AWS Integration now supports ElastiCache・HTTP/2 support etc.

We will be running an exhibit at the AWS Summit for three days starting on June 1st.

Those attending the event should definitely stop by the Mackerel booth.

Here is this week’s Mackerel update.

AWS Integration now supports ElastiCache

ElastiCache metrics can now be collected in AWS Integration.

ElastiCache is converted as one host for each Cache Node.

When using this integration with ElastiCache, be sure to allow the AmazonElastiCacheReadOnlyAccess policy.

Check out the help page for more on how to configure etc.

mackerel.io

We plan to expand the number of supported services in AWS Integration.

mackerel.io now supports HTTP/2

We weren’t able to inform you in last week’s announcement, but https://mackerel.io now supports HTTP/2.

Mackerel has supported SPDY since last year, however, accompanying the end of Chrome support, has advanced to support HTTP/2.

As a result, we expect improvements in performance when referring to any page of mackerel.io in a HTTP/2 supported browser.

In Mackerel, we continually strive for technical advancement and performance improvements.
