Get EC2 instance names

Hi everyone! I’m using the InfluxData Sandbox version 3. After define the CloudWatch input in Telegraf I’m unable to get the EC2 instance names (the tag key “name” is missing). The available tag keys are:

  • auto_scaling_group_name
  • host
  • instance_id
  • region
  • unit

Would it be possible to get the EC2 name associated with the instance_id?

Thanks in advance.

Cloudwatch doesn’t seem to have the instance names, so it’s not possible now. In the future, I think we will be able to do this with a processor that enriches the data using other AWS data sources.
