Memory Metric from ECS Fargate


Hello guys,

Is there a way to view the memory metrics from a task on ECS Fargate ?

I know through Container Insights, but I'd like to find another method.

One alternative is use AWS Exec to get a container on the shell and run


or a similar command to view memory. Alternatively, you could install a container sidecar with memory metric monitoring capabilities like New Relic.

Feel free to ask a follow-up if the above doesn't make sense!
