Monitoring: Amazon EBS

Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) is a cloud-based storage service that provides block-level storage volumes for Amazon EC2 instances. It is designed for applications that require persistent and low-latency storage, such as databases or transactional workloads.

Why should you monitor Amazon EBS?

Many systems rely on EBS to persist their data with high availability and durability. Therefore, monitoring things that can go wrong, such as failed EBS snapshots, is crucial.

That’s why it is crucial to monitor Amazon EBS.
