AWS Trusted Advisor Update – New and Updated Checks

The AWS Trusted Advisor helps you to provision and configure your AWS resources so as to improve system performance and reliability, increase security, and optimize for cost. We have added some new checks and improved an existing one in order to make Trusted Advisor even more useful to you. Here is a summary of the changes:

The Service Limits check now reports on your usage of EC2 On-Demand instances:

This check is available to all users of Trusted Advisor. The remaining checks are available to customers who are using AWS Support API at the Business or Enterprise level.

The S3 Bucket Logging Configuration check now looks to see if server access logging has been configured for each bucket:

The new EC2 to EBS Throughput check looks for EBS volumes that might be affected by the throughput capacity of the EC2 instances:

The new CloudFront Alternate Domains check looks at the DNS settings for alternate domains on your CloudFront distributions:

The new CloudFront SSL Certificate on the Origin Server check looks for SSL certificates that are expired, about to expire, or that use outdated encryption:
