ECS now supported with AWS Integration and more

Mackerel Team CRE Miura (id:missasan) here.

Earlier this year in February, the public beta version of Mackerel’s container agent was released. And with the growing interest in container monitoring, AWS Integration has now been updated to support ECS. With this feature, you can integrate and check the metrics of ECS clusters and services in Mackerel. Definitely give it a try with the container agent.

A large number of OSS updates were made this week as well. Thank you to all the contributors!

Now on to this week’s update information.
