Monitoring: AWS Fargate Spot

AWS Fargate is a serverless compute engine for containers that allows users to run containers in a managed environment without having to manage the underlying infrastructure. With Fargate Spot, AWS provides access to spare EC2 capacity at a discounted price that can be used for running Fargate tasks.

Fargate Spot is well-suited for applications that can tolerate interruptions, such as batch processing workloads, containerized microservices, and event-driven architectures. It is designed to provide significant cost savings while maintaining the same level of security, scalability, and availability as Fargate tasks.

Why should you monitor AWS Fargate Spot?

It is crucial to monitor interruptions or capacity problems in AWS Fargate Spot to ensure the reliability and availability of containerized applications. By monitoring for potential spot instance interruptions and tracking capacity utilization, you can quickly identify and address issues that could impact the performance and availability of your workload.
