Monitoring AWS EC2 Burnrate with Grok
NOTE: Numenta has announced a strategic partnership with Avik Partners, please read more about the future of Grok for IT Analytics.
A few months ago, we mentioned that we’re monitoring our AWS EC2 costs with Grok. We developed a simple script to monitor our burnrate and ensure that when our spend changed, we knew about it and could take action. Since we posted Grok For Managing AWS Cost Anomalies, we’ve had requests for more details and for access to the script.
Today we’re happy to announce that the script is available on Github at https://github.com/groksolutions/grok-burnrate. You can run it as a standalone script or with Docker using the Dockerfile there or by pulling from the public Docker registry.
