The Amazon AWS EC2 Event Monitor watches your AWS instances, elastic IPs, snapshots, and security groups. It alerts based on the state of each instance and the presence or absence of elastic IPs and snapshots.
To begin, set an alert level to receive if the event monitor cannot connect to AWS.
The first option will let you know if the state of any instance changes. The next one will notify you if any instance has failed a status check.
You can also choose to be alerted if any instance is launched or deleted. After this, specify whether or not you want to receive a list of all instances in each notification generated by the event monitor.
The next four options are elastic IP settings. The first two let you know if an elastic IP has been added or removed. The next two will notify you if an elastic IP has been assigned or unassigned.
You can also configure snapshot alert settings with the Amazon AWS EC2 Event Monitor. You can choose to be alerted if new snapshots are created or deleted. Select your preferred level of alert for each case.
Choose the alert levels you want to receive based on the number of snapshots detected, then configure the alert settings that will trigger if the combined size of all snapshots exceeds the values you specify.
Next, configure the level of alert you want to receive if any security groups are modified.
