Fleet Manager, a feature in AWS Systems Manager (SSM) that helps IT Admins streamline and scale their remote server management tasks, now offers an easy console-based experience for customers to view and manage processes on their instances. This new feature provides customers a consolidated view of the processes running on an instance coupled with the ability to assess their resource consumption in real-time and optimize operations through start/stop actions.

The new Fleet Manager feature displays a list of all the processes currently running on the server. Customers are able to see granular details such as process name, process details, and utilization metrics for every active process. They can query processes by name and also easily sort the columns based on any of the process parameters. In addition to this detailed reporting, the process management capability in Fleet Manager shows the aggregate counts of CPU, Memory, Handles and Threads being consumed in real-time. Customers can even terminate unwanted processes directly from the Fleet manager console or start a new process by providing the process name or full path of the executable they want to run. Moreover, customers have a choice to start a new process in the current directory or specify a different path in the console.

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, performance counters, and user management from a single console. Fleet Manager manages instances running 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).
