Hi everyone, we currently have an AMI in Amazon Web Services with v4.0 that we need to upgrade to v5 (with the rebranding in between) for our customer. So far it's going good, I have launched a new instance and started copying the configuration info to one another. This made me question how or what is the best way to maintain a backup of this servers, since it is an instance type and a reboot or shutdown erases all configuration.
I would also like to know how can I take metrics of the RTMFP connections, as the instance we're using is a "large" type, and it is currently limited to 100 simultaneous connections. This was an issue we were having with an older instance; at some point the FMS stopped recording and we had to do a restart once a week.
Yes a reboot/shutdown of the AMI will erase all instance data. I think the best bet to back up is saving on an external EBS Volume. You can then create a snapshot of that and actually create a volume only on need-basis. You might want to confirm from AWS experts whether this is the right approach.
For RTMFP connections, I believe you can monitor them via the Administration Console.
