I have an instance running on Amazon EC2 that I turned into a webserver.
Now I have been looking at cloudwatch, but I do not know if it is the correct tool for the job. Basically I want to get informed when the server is down, for whatever reason.
Maybe the server got hacked, or the server shut down for whatever reason, I want to get a notification on that.
I have enabled clouwatch, and tried to set up a alert, but I only see things like network in-out or cpu usage, an d metrix. Now I do not know if these will do the trick.
