I am currently using Grafana with CloudWatch Datasource. Everything work actually pretty smoothly. Except one thing that drives me crazy.
I simply want a graph the amount/sum of currently running/active instances [Step 1]. Best case I want to split this by a specific tag (InstanceType)[Step 2].
Is this something thats simply not possible with the Datasource CloudWatch? If so, what’s the best-practise on this? This doesn’t seem like an edge use-case.
I could think of creating CloudWatch Events or creating LogMetrics… but is there really no easier way?
