Amazon FSx

Overview

Amazon FSx is a fully managed service that provides scalable storage for NetApp ONTAP, OpenZFS, Windows File Server, and Lustre file systems.

Enable this integration to see all your FSx metrics in Datadog.

Setup

Installation

If you haven’t already, set up the Amazon Web Services integration first.

Metric collection

  1. In the AWS integration page, ensure that FSx is enabled under the Metric Collection tab.

  2. Add the following permissions to your Datadog IAM policy in order to collect Amazon FSx metrics.

    AWS PermissionDescription
    fsx:ListTagsForResourceUsed to add FSx custom tags.
    fsx:DescribeFileSystemsUsed to provide storage and throughput capacity.
  3. Install the Datadog - Amazon FSx integration.

Log collection

Audit event logs for FSx for Windows File Server

To track all user accesses of individual files, folders, and file shares, integrate the audit event logs from your FSx for Windows File Server:

  1. Enable the file access auditing feature for your file systems and send the logs to CloudWatch.
  2. If you haven’t already, set up the Datadog log collection AWS Lambda function (version 3.35.0+).
  3. Once the Lambda function is installed, manually add a trigger on the /aws/fsx/windows CloudWatch log group in the AWS console:
    cloudwatch log group
    Select the corresponding CloudWatch Log group, add a filter name (or leave the filter empty), and add the trigger:
    cloudwatch trigger
  4. Go to the Datadog Log section to start exploring your logs!

Note: You can also send these logs to Datadog with Kinesis Data Firehose, but you must create a custom log processor to get the same log parsing functionality and search experience.

FSx API activity

Amazon FSx is integrated with AWS CloudTrail which tracks every FSx action taken by a user, role, or AWS service. Enable Datadog’s CloudTrail Integration to monitor all FSx API calls in your AWS account.
