Mackerel supports obtaining and monitoring Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) metrics in AWS Integration. When integrating with AWS Integration, billable targets are determined using the conversion 1 Instance = 1 Standard Host. AWS integration and mackerel-agent can also be used together. In such a case, system metrics and custom metrics will be integrated as one host (no duplicate charges will be made).
Please refer to the following page for AWS Integration configuration methods and a list of supported AWS services.
The metrics obtainable with AWS Integration’s EC2 support are as follows. For
Metric explanations, refer to the AWS help page.
The maximum number of metrics obtainable is 15.

Using with mackerel-agent
If mackerel-agent has already been installed on the target EC2 instance, host information from Mackerel will automatically be integrated and registered as one host. It will not be counted twice as a billable host.
If you prefer a more detailed style of monitoring with AWS Integration, we recommend installing mackerel-agent for EC2.
