Amazon AWS – Using SNS and Cloudwatch To Get Notified Of Basic Resource Events
Lets say you have a mission critical production EC2 instance and you just want to know when it’s status has changed for example from running to stopped, pending etc.
Here is the process from a high level then I’ll give you a couple screen shots.
- Create an SNS Topic
- Subscribe to the topic – for example provide your email address
- Create a Cloudwatch -> Event – Rule and associate it to your topic
Voila that is it.
Added Screen shots:
Create a topic and subscribe to it
Create the rule and associate the SNS Topic to it
That is it you will be notified of a instance status change event – via the email provided.
