The AWS Discovery Connector and AWS Discovery Agent both provide system performance data based on average and peak utilization. You can use the system performance data collected to perform a high-level TCO (Total Cost of Ownership). Discovery Agents collect more detailed data including time series data for system performance information, inbound and outbound network connections, and processes running on the server. You can use this data to understand network dependencies between servers and group the related servers as applications for migration planning. In this section you’ll find instructions on how to view and work with data discovered by Discovery Connectors and Discovery Agents from the console. You can get a general view and a detailed view of the servers discovered by the data collection tools.
1. In the Migration Hub navigation pane, choose Discover, then Servers. The discovered servers appear in the servers list.
It takes approximately 15 minutes for agents to start collecting data.
2. For more detail about a server, choose its server link in the Server info column. Doing so displays a screen that describes the server details, such as OS, Memory, CPU, Performance Information, etc.
The server’s detail screen displays system information and performance metrics.
