Dedicating an Instance to Monitoring

Length: 00:07:16

Lesson Summary:

CloudWatch is not a solution that fits all. You might have other monitoring requirements, like the need for redundant monitoring where CloudWatch is your main service, but you need to have backup monitoring options, or other types of metrics and reporting tools. This lesson explains how to setup an EC2 instance to ping other instances in order to check for availability. While this may not always be the best solution, it is a requirement for the certification exam.
