Fleet Manager, a feature in AWS Systems Manager (SSM) that helps IT Admins streamline and scale their remote server management processes, now enhances the reporting and filtering experience for Managed Instances. This new feature presents filtering options applicable to your data, taking out the guess work. You no longer need to memorize and manually enter values for filtering. It automatically populates applicable filtering criteria such as instance IDs or IP addresses.

With Fleet Manager, you can generate reports for your entire inventory of Managed Instances and download them for future use. This new feature presents, at-a-glance, information about key instance properties such as Image ID and patch status including patch installed count, patch failed count, patch critical noncompliant count and patch group. You have the ability to filter instances based on one or more criteria allowing you to focus on a subset of instances. Fleet Manager also enables adding tags to single or multiple instances directly from the service console. The new filtering adds the ability to sort your rows through a simple click and also rearrange the sequence of columns through an intuitive drag and drop mechanism.

Fleet Manager is a console based experience in Systems Manager that provides you with visual tools to manage your Windows, Linux, and macOS servers . With it, you can easily perform common administrative tasks such as file system exploration, log management, Windows Registry operations, performance counters, and user management from a single console. Fleet Manager manages instances running both on AWS and on-premises, without needing to remotely connect to the servers.

Fleet Manager is available in all AWS Regions where Systems Manager is offered (excluding AWS China Regions).
