Logging Using awslogs Log Driver in Amazon ECS

2021-05-04T09:25:50+00:00

Monitoring and logging can be as important as developing and deploying applications. Imagine managing an enterprise-level distributed application that runs on hundreds of containers. You must place your containers cleverly on instances to achieve a certain level of resilience and performance. On top of that, you would want to have visibility into CPU and memory usage so you’ll have an idea which task/tasks are resource-hungry at a given time. You may also want to check the disk space of your instance and see if you still have enough storage for your application. Fortunately, monitoring distributed applications hosted in AWS has [...]

AWS Savings Plan

2021-05-21T02:27:30+00:00

Savings Plan is a flexible pricing model that helps you save up cost on Amazon EC2, AWS Fargate, and AWS Lambda usage. You can purchase Savings Plans from any account, payer or linked.  By default, the benefit provided by Savings Plans is applicable to usage across all accounts within an AWS Organization/consolidated billing family. You can also choose to restrict the benefit of Savings Plans to only the account that purchased them. Similar to Reserved Instances, you have All Upfront, Partial upfront, or No upfront payment options. Plan Types Compute Savings Plans - provide the most flexibility and prices that [...]

ECS Network Modes Comparison

2021-05-03T12:55:41+00:00

Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) allows you to run Docker-based containers on the cloud. Amazon ECS has two launch types for operation: EC2 and Fargate. The EC2 launch type provides EC2 instances as hosts for your Docker containers. For the Fargate launch type, AWS manages the underlying hosts so you can focus on managing your containers instead. The details and configuration on how you want to run your containers are defined on the ECS Task Definition which includes options on networking mode.  In this post, we’ll talk about the different networking modes supported by Amazon ECS and determine which mode [...]

Configuring Notifications for Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling Lifecycle Hooks

2021-05-12T08:51:56+00:00

Auto Scaling Lifecycle Hooks In the previous post, we talked about Auto Scaling Lifecycle Hooks and how to configure it on your Auto Scaling group. You can view the article here. It’s better to read it first before proceeding with this section. In a nutshell, Auto Scaling Lifecycle Hooks allow you to put an instance in the “wait” state while the Auto Scaling group responds to a scale-out or scale-in event. While the instance is in the “wait” state, you perform actions such as installing the application before allowing traffic to the instance or sending out the application logs to [...]

Step Scaling vs Simple Scaling Policies vs Target Tracking Policies in Amazon EC2

2021-05-12T06:42:22+00:00

Bookmarks Simple Scaling  Target Tracking Step Scaling  Creating a Step Scaling Policy for an Auto Scaling Group Amazon’s EC2 Auto Scaling provides an effective way to ensure that your infrastructure is able to dynamically respond to changing user demands. For example, to accommodate a sudden traffic increase on your web application, you can set your Auto Scaling group to automatically add more instances. And when traffic is low, have it automatically reduce the number of instances. This is a cost-effective solution since it only provisions EC2 instances when you need them. EC2 Auto [...]

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling Lifecycle Hooks

2021-05-12T06:03:34+00:00

Bookmarks Auto Scaling Lifecycle Hooks Configure Lifecycle Hooks on your Auto Scaling Groups Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling allows you to scale-out or scale-in your EC2 instances automatically based on policies you configured in response to changing demand on your application. Auto Scaling Groups lets you set a minimum and maximum number of EC2 instances to automatically resize your cluster based on a defined schedule or instance metrics such as CPU utilization, network traffic, etc. This is an excellent way to cut costs and make sure you have the correct number of instances since traffic on [...]
