How to get memory chart in AWS EBS? Lots of choice there but memory is not one of them. The setup used includes a load balancer.

enter image description here


The default metrics you see are the ones visible by the hypervisor. Memory utilisation along with for example disk space utilisation is an OS-level metric, not hypervisor-level metric, and to capture it in CloudWatch you’ll have to install CloudWatch Agent on your instance. Then you’ll get access to many more metrics.

Hope that helps :)

  • Thank you for your answer. Can you please clarify further. Am I correct that you stated that the way to get charts for os-level metrics in Elastic Beanstalk is by using CloudWatch? They can't be created in EB directly?
