Setting Up Grafana Monitoring on AWS EC2 Instances

Hello Everyone

I hope this message finds you all well. I’m currently facing an issue while trying to set up Grafana monitoring on my AWS EC2 instances, and I could really use some guidance from those who have experience in this area.

Here’s a bit of background: I’ve been tasked with implementing Grafana to monitor the performance of our AWS EC2 instances. While I’ve followed various online tutorials and documentation, I’ve hit a roadblock, and I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong.

Challenges I’ve encountered:

1.Data Source Configuration: I’m having trouble configuring the data source in Grafana to connect to AWS Cloud computing Watch. I’ve followed the steps outlined in the documentation, but I keep getting errors.

2.Dashboard Creation: Creating meaningful dashboards to monitor CPU, memory, and other metrics is proving to be more complex than I initially thought. I’m looking for tips on best practices and possibly some pre-built dashboard templates to get started.

3.Alerting:I’d like to set up alerts in Grafana to notify me when certain thresholds are exceeded, but I’m struggling with the alerting rules and notification channels configuration.

If anyone has successfully set up Grafana for monitoring AWS EC2 instances or has experience with Grafana and AWS integration, I would greatly appreciate your insights. Whether it’s a step-by-step guide, helpful resources, or even just some troubleshooting advice, your assistance would be invaluable.

Thank you in advance
