I've started adding load metrics to Cloudwatch. This is the script I wrote; gist.github.com/cbiggins/fa656876ecaa7d210c19. If you add your comment as the answer I'll accept it.

comment ec2 systemd unable to mount nfs on boot and it times out
This worked for me with the combination of specifying nfs4 as the filesystem. Nice tip.

comment Load balanced EC2 instances for high performance hosting?
Nice tip, thanks. I've always found the mounting and direct use of S3 more difficult. I also need compute for search and memcache which will also run on the NFS instance.

NFS just stores uploads and file cache. Actual app is deployed to each instance.

comment Load balanced EC2 instances for high performance hosting?
Hi @vijayrajah thanks for that info. The network speed has had me scratching my head. The NFS is mainly for writing as I serve static content from Cloud Front, I forgot to add that. It works on my existing host so no change. Will increase that if required.
