Manage ECS instance groups

Last Updated: Jun 01, 2018

Grouping is an important way for ARMS to simplify user resource management. With grouping, you can manage all ECS instances whose logs are to be collected by the Logtail client. Currently, ARMS only supports the ECS log source group.

Create an ECS group

  1. In the left-side navigation pane of the ARMS console, choose Custom Monitoring - Data Sources > ECS Log.

  2. On the instance list page, select the ECS Groups tab.

  3. Click Create ECS Group in the upper-right corner of the page.

  4. In the New ECS Group dialog box, enter the group name, select the region, add the target ECS instances, and click OK.

    NOTE: Only instances in the same region can be added to the same ECS group.
