Default time period that CloudWatch metrics are stored
Metrics monitored on hosts
How to extent the retention of metrics past 2 weeks
GetMetricsStatistics API or with 3rd party tools
How long are terminated EC2 and ELB metrics stored for
System status checks versus Instance checks
System checks are the physical layer and instance is at the EC2 layer
Systems check information includes what?
Loss of network
How to resolve system issues
Stop and start the instance
Instance status checks include what?
Failed system checks
Misconfigured networking or startup config
Corrupt File System
Best way to resolve instance issues
How many IO credits do you get on a GP2 volume
How many minutes will it take to use 5,400,00 IO credits at max burst performance of 3000 IOPS on a GP2 volume
What is happening to your credit balance when you are not bursting IOPS on a GP2 volume
You will earn credits
What is the best way to prewarm a normal (new) EBS volume
Write to all blocks
What is the best way to prewar an EBS volume based on a snapshot
Read all blocks
For Memcached at what CPU utilization is recommended to autoscale
Is Reddis or Memcached multithreaded?
Yes Memcached is.
How to determine when you should scale a Reddis for CPU utilization
90% / # of cored
I.E. 90% / 4 = 22.5%
What parameter should you increase if Memcached exceeds 50MB of swap usage
What does the Memcache_Connections_Overhead parameter specify?
The amount of reserved memory for connections and other misc overhead
What is the Reddis parameter for reserving memory
What can be done to to reduce the amount of evictions for Memcached?
Scale up (increase memory) or Scale out (add more instances)
How to reduce the amount of evictions on Reddis?
Scale out (Adding more replicas)
What would a large spike with sustained concurrent connections mean for Memcached and Reddis?
Maybe not releasing connections as it should be
What region must be used for billing alarms
Elasticity on EC2
Scalability on EC2
Increase of # of instances bases on autoscale
Scalability on DynamoDB
Elasticity on DynamoDB
Increasing IOPS for spikes and then decreasing
Scalability on RDS
Increasing instance size from small to medium or similar
