In this article, we will be looking at how we can get the Memory Stats in Turbonomic. As always there are different ways of doing this and in this article, I am going to be focusing on how you can do this the easiest way which is using an application developed to make submitting memory metrics to AWS simple.

 

If you would like to do this the manual way, then please follow the steps on AWS website which shows you how you can collect Memory Stats and Submit them to CloudWatch.

 

Requirements:

  • AWS AccessKey
  • AWS SecretKey
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 installed on the server OS - By default, this is already installed. 

 

Step 1: Download the portable application from this article. 

Download Link: http://img.support.vmturbo.com/AWS/AWS_Stats_Win.zip

Step 2: Unzip the file to your C:/ and then execute the AWS Stats Collector.exe inside the extracted folder.

 

Step 3: Enter your AWS Access Key and SecretKey in the required fields and then click Save Settings

Step 4: Make sure the option Submit Memory Used is checked and then click Start Sending Data.

 

Installation Complete.

Now after few minutes you will be able to see stats in your CloudWatch page and Turbonomic will be able to import the Used Memory.

 

Updates:

  • 1.0.0 - Initial Release
  • 1.0.1 - Minor Update
    • Tweaked permissions so it runs as Administrator 
    • No longer automatically starts sending data on initial start
  • 1.0.2 - Removed unnecessary metrics submission from UI
