Course Description

In this challenge lab, you will monitor applications by using an Amazon CloudWatch dashboard. First, you will connect to the web servers that are running behind a load balancer. Next, you will create a CloudWatch metric filter for 404 errors on each web server, and then you will create a custom CloudWatch dashboard to display the memory, CPU, and load balancer metrics. Finally, you will test the dashboard by simulating activity. Note: Once you begin the challenge lab, you will not be able to pause, save, or exit and then return to your challenge lab. Please ensure that you have set aside enough time to complete the challenge lab before you start.
