node[:cw_mon][:group]- the group the files should belong to. Defaults to
node[:cw_mon][:home_dir]- the directory to install the scripts in. Defaults to
node[:cw_mon][:version]- the version of the scripts to install. Defaults to
node[:cw_mon][:release_url]- the URL to download from. Defaults to
node[:cw_mon][:aws_users_databag]- the encrypted databag containing the AWS key. See section below for details. Defaults to
node[:cw_mon][:access_key_id]- the AWS access key id the script should authenticate with. See section below for details.
node[:cw_mon][:secret_access_key]- the AWS access key the script should authenticate with. See section below for details.
node[:cw_mon][:options]- the list of options to pass to the script. By default, all options are included:
--disk-space-util --disk-path=/ --disk-space-used --disk-space-avail

recipe[cloudwatch_monitoring] in a run list, or
include_recipe 'cloud_watch_monitoring' to ensure that
the CloudWatch script is installed and cron'ed on your systems.
with IAM role (recommended)
If your instance has an IAM role, then the script will use it to and you don't have to worry about setting keys.
Make sure that the role has permissions to perform the Amazon CloudWatch
with a key
If your instance does not have a role, you need to specify a key. This can be done in 2 ways:
- using the encrypted data bad specified by
node[:cw_mon][:aws_users_databag]. That bag must contain an item for
node[:cw_mon][:user]with 2 attributes:
- using the node attributes:
If the key get be loaded from the databag, the node attributes will be used.
Make sure that the user associated to the key has permissions to perform the Amazon CloudWatch
