Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling

Version: AWS Log Forwarder v1.0.10 and above.

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling is designed to automatically launch or terminate EC2 instances based on user-defined scaling policies, scheduled actions, and health checks.

Netsurion’s Open XDR platform monitors events from Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling by parsing the AWS CloudTrail logs and triggers from Amazon EventBridge. Dashboards and reports in Netsurion allow you to monitor¬†overall actions related to the Amazon EC2 service to keep you informed about its activities. It will trigger alerts whenever an action that is critical to the service is carried out.

For a new instance, integrate the AWS instance to Netsurion using the Netsurion integrator lambda function, which will deliver the logs to Netsurion from AWS. For an already-integrated AWS instance, make sure to update to ETS-AWS-LogForwarder v1.1.0 or above.

Once configured to deliver events to Netsurion’s Open XDR platform, dashboards, and reports can be configured into Netsurion.
