Viewing ECS Metrics


The cloud platform provides Cloud Eye, which monitors the running statuses of your ECSs. You can obtain the monitoring metrics of each ECS on the management console.

There a short time delay between transmission and display of monitoring data. The status of an ECS displayed on Cloud Eye is the status obtained 5 to 10 minutes before. If an ECS is just created, wait for 5 to 10 minutes to view the real-time monitoring data.


  • The ECS is running properly.

    Cloud Eye does not display the monitoring data for a stopped, faulty, or deleted ECS. After such an ECS restarts or recovers, the monitoring data is available in Cloud Eye.


    Cloud Eye discontinues monitoring ECSs that remain in Stopped or Faulty state for 24 hours and removes them from the monitoring list. However, the alarm rules for such ECSs are not automatically deleted.

  • Alarm rules have been configured in Cloud Eye for the target ECS.

    The monitoring data is unavailable for the ECSs without alarm rules configured in Cloud Eye. For details, see Setting Alarm Rules.

  • The target ECS has been properly running for at least 10 minutes.

    The monitoring data and graphics are available for a new ECS after the ECS runs for at least 10 minutes.
