EC2
Remediation
AWS Best Practices
Remediation

Increases EBS Volume size when the instance's disk utilisation exceeds 90%

Reboot process in EC2 machine (Triggered by alarm)
EC2
Remediation

If CPUUtilization of any instance having required cloudwatch alarm set, If CPUUtilization goes high then this workflow will be triggered and it will lower down the CPUUtilization of the machine by rebooting the process inside the machine.

Upgrade EC2 Machines ( Triggered by JIRA )
EC2
Remediation

Jira ticket with required summary will trigger this workflow. Instances having the same tag that are mentioned in the description of jira ticket will upgrade to their next level once the CPUUtilization goes high . This will reduce the CPUUtilization of that machine.

Upgrade EC2 Machines ( Triggered by Alarm )
EC2
Remediation

If CPUUtilization of instances having an alarm set goes above 90% then this workflow will be triggered and it will upgrade the EC2 machine to their next level if CPUUtilization goes high. This will eventually reduce the CPUUtilization.

Backup and Terminate EC2 Instances ( Triggered by JIRA )
EC2
Remediation

Jira ticket with required summary will trigger this workflow. AMI backup and EBS snapshot of Instances will be taken as a backup of the instances having the same tag that are mentioned in the description of jira ticket

Launch EC2 instances from AMI ( Triggered by JIRA )
EC2
Remediation

Jira ticket with required summary will trigger this workflow. Instances will be launched on AMI's having the same tag that are mentioned in the description of jira ticket

Reboot Process in EC2 instances (Triggered by Jira)
EC2
Remediation

Jira ticket with required summary will trigger this workflow. Apache (httpd) server inside the Instances will be rebooted for those instances which have the same tag that are mentioned in the description of Jira ticket. This rebooting of the process will decrease the CPUUtilization of the machine.

Reboot EC2 instances ( Triggered by JIRA )
EC2
Remediation

This workflow will reboot EC2 instances if CPUUtilizatin goes high and Jira ticket with required summary will trigger this workflow. Instances having the same tag that are mentioned in the description of jira ticket will get rebooted. This will reduce the CPUUtilization of that machine.

Reboot process of unhealthy servers associated with a target group
EC2
Remediation

Reboots the process running in unhealthy EC2 machines associated with a target group.

Unrestricted Elasticsearch(9200) Access
EC2
Security
Remediation

It is AWS best practice to remove entries in security group which allows Elastic Search access from public IP to reduce possibility of breach. Allowing unrestricted Elastic Search access can increase threats like hacking, denial-of-service (DoS) attacks and loss of data.

EC2
Security
Remediation

It is AWS best practice to remove entries in security group which allows RPC access from public IP to reduce possibility of breach. Allowing unrestricted RPC access can increase threats like hacking, denial-of-service (DoS) attacks and loss of data.

Delete a Particular Folder on EBS Volume
EC2
Remediation

Takes the EBS volumes in your AWS account and deletes a particular folder inside it. This practice helps you to remove unused data from the EBS volume to increase the proper utilization of volume and store more useful data without increasing the volume unnecessarily.

Modify Instance Type if CPU Utilization <10% For a Week
EC2
Cost Saving
Remediation
Cost Saving
Remediation

If CPU utilization is less than 10% for a week, you are not utilizing the instance efficiently. This workflow identifies such instances and switches them to another instance type.

Reboot EC2 instances if CPUUtilization Goes High (Triggered by Alarm)
EC2
Remediation
Remediation

If CPUUtilization of the machine having an alarm set goes above 90%, the alarm will trigger this workflow. Instances with high CPUUtilizaton will be rebooted to reduce their CPUUtilization.

Copy EC2 Logs Data to S3 and Delete the Log Folder
S3
EC2
Remediation
AWS Best Practices
Remediation

Moves the logs present in the log folder of EC2 machine and transfers them into a specified S3 Bucket. This practice helps you to store the logs you want, without worrying about the disk space in the machine.
