Applies to: AWS Log Forwarder v1.0.10 and above
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) provides scalable computing capacity in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. Amazon EC2 eliminates your need to invest in the hardware up front, so one could develop and deploy applications faster. You can use Amazon EC2 to launch as many or as few virtual servers as you need, configure security and networking, and manage storage. Amazon EC2 enables you to scale up or down to handle changes in requirements or spikes in popularity, reducing the need to forecast traffic.
Netsurion monitors events from Amazon EC2 by parsing the AWS CloudTrail logs and triggers from Amazon EventBridge. Dashboards and reports in Netsurion’s threat protection platform, EventTracker, will track the overall actions performed that are 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 EventTracker using the EventTracker integrator lambda function, which will, in turn, deliver logs to EventTracker from AWS.
Once configured to deliver events to EventTracker Manager, the alerts, dashboards, and reports can be configured into EventTracker.
For an already-integrated AWS instance, make sure to update to ETS_AWS_LogForwarder v1.0.10 or above.
The configuration details are consistent with EventTracker version 9.3X and later, and ETS-AWS-LogForwarder v1.0.10 and above.
To configure Amazon EC2 to send logs to EventTracker, refer to the How-to Guide.
