CloudMonitor provides multiple metrics, such as the inbound traffic, outbound traffic, received packets, and transmitted packets, to help you monitor the status of Elastic IP Address (EIP). CloudMonitor also allows you to set alert rules for these metrics so that you can receive alerts when any exception occurs. After you purchase EIP, CloudMonitor automatically collects data based on these metrics.
