AWS Fargate adds the ability to monitor the utilization of the ephemeral storage attached to a Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) task. Customers can track the storage utilization with Amazon CloudWatch Container Insights and ECS Task Metadata endpoint.

Container Insights helps monitor usage, visualize metrics on CloudWatch dashboards, and create alarms to be notified when the usage is approaching the configured storage limits. Additionally, ECS Task metadata endpoint makes it easy to query for storage utilization metric and build integrations with custom monitoring solutions.

Storage utilization metric is only available for tasks that run on Fargate Linux platform version 1.4.0 or later. The feature is available in all commercial regions where AWS Fargate is available, including AWS GovCloud (US) and China Regions. To get started, review our ECS Container Insights and Task metadata endpoint documentation.
