By using ControlUp’s AWS EC2 cloud management all instances are visible in the same place. Their performance metrics and cost metrics are displayed with a great level of granularity, all live and in real time. If resources are strained, they’re shown in flashing red. If any aspect of the cost shoots up, so will the red flags.

Adding an EC2 instance to ControlUp is as easy as adding a cloud connection from within the Real-Time Console, simply provide your AWS EC2 credentials (which can be read only) and within seconds the ControlUp console will populate with real-time performance and cost metrics.

This JSON contains the permissions necessary to work with AWS on ControlUp. The permission setting can retrieve data, but it cannot take any actions, such as stopping, starting an instance, or taking screenshots.
