Amazon ECS Data Collection

Amazon ECS Data Collection

Data collected


Amazon ECS on EC2 is a container management service for Docker containers running on EC2 instances. Metrics collected by the Agent when deployed in a Docker container are the same metrics collected by the Docker integration. See the Docker integration metrics for a complete list of metrics.

Note: Docker metrics are tagged accordingly with the following tags: container_name, task_arn, task_family, task_name, task_version. No further configuration is required.


To reduce noise, the Amazon ECS integration is automatically set up to include only events that contain the following words: drain, error, fail, insufficient memory, pending, reboot, terminate. See example events below:

To remove this include list and receive all events from your Datadog Amazon ECS integration, reach out to Datadog support.
