RightScale supports basic monitoring of Windows servers. By default, the following metrics are monitored:
Additional metrics are provided by the Chef recipes in the 'sys_monitoring' cookbook. (Ex: add_iis_stats, add_process_stats, etc)
The easiest way to see a Windows server with monitoring enabled is to launch a server using one of our All-In-One ServerTemplates.
If you have a different AMI that you want to enable for monitoring so that you can see its graphs in the RightScale Dashboard, follow the instructions below.
Follow the steps below to enable monitoring on a Windows server.
In order to enable monitoring on a Windows server you need to have access to the '
SYS Monitoring install' Powershell RightScript or '
sys_monitoring::default' Chef recipe.
Import the Windows "ASP.NET All-In-One Developer" ServerTemplate from the MultiCloud Marketplace (published by RightScale) so that the "RightScale Public Windows" RepoPath object is effectively imported.
Alternatively, you can create a new RepoPath with the Cookbook Repos, git://github.com/rightscale/cookbooks_public_windows
Under the cookbook repository ensure you have set the cookbooks path to '
cookbooks' and set the Tag/Branch to '92649d6dc012f36e538b2889f3eb06fd88064ccd'. See also Create a RepoPath
SYS Monitoring install' Powershell RightScript or the '
sys_monitoring::default' Chef recipe from the 'sys_monitoring' cookbook as a Boot Script.
