AWS Cloudwatch Agent

Anyone managed to get this installed on their AWS Clear Linux servers? I’m needing to monitor memory usage via Cloud Watch.

That requires the Cloudwatch Agent to be installed.

The instructions seem relatively simple - i.e. download their scripts, and run them. You may need to install one of the perl bundles (sudo swupd bundle-add perl-extras?) to get all the support needed, but, it’s likely to work.

Give it a try?
