Starting today, you can monitor the capacity and performance metrics of your Spot fleets via CloudWatch. You can view metrics such as total desired, fulfilled and currently launching capacity of a fleet, in addition to monitoring aggregated EC2 instance metrics such as CPU utilization, disk reads and writes, and network traffic for a given fleet. These metrics enable you to get visibility into the usage and performance of your Spot fleets, and to dynamically scale in response to application load.

You can view these metrics using the AWS Management Console or the AWS CLI/SDK tools in all regions where Spot instances are supported. To learn more, visit the Amazon EC2 User Guide
