The AWS provider collects price metrics for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) from Amazon’s own APIs.
This section provides the minimum requirements that you should match before using the AWS telemetry provider.
This telemetry provider makes use of parameters
aws_ec2_instance_sizeto identify the price. When using this provider make sure that your system has a component of type EC2 and that those parameters are defined in the baseline and, if optimized, in the parameters selection.
- Versions >= 2.0.0 are compatible with Akamas from version 1.9.0
In order to gather price information about a component you’re required to input an extra field in its definition:
region, which tells the provider the AWS region of the modeled instance
Please note this field is mandatory and must be specified as follows:
# Specification for a component, whose metrics should be collected by the AWS Provider
name: aws_1 # name of the component
description: aws_1 instance to tune # description of the component
region: us-east-1 # AWS region of the component
Here is a complete list of AWS region names, together with their Akamas-compatible codes:
