Detect & correct EBS volumes using gp2

Overview

EBS gp2 volumes are more expensive and less performant than gp3 volumes.

This query trigger detects gp2 EBS volumes and then either sends a notification or attempts to perform a predefined corrective action.

Getting Started

By default, this trigger is disabled, however it can be configred by setting the below variables

  • ebs_volumes_using_gp2_trigger_enabled should be set to true as the default is false.
  • ebs_volumes_using_gp2_trigger_schedule should be set to your desired running schedule
  • ebs_volumes_using_gp2_default_action should be set to your desired action (i.e. "notify" for notifications or "update_to_gp3" to update the volume).

Then starting the server:

flowpipe server

or if you've set the variables in a .fpvars file:

flowpipe server --var-file=/path/to/your.fpvars

Query

select
concat(
volume_id,
' [',
volume_type,
'/',

availability_zone,
']'
) as title,
volume_id,
region,
_ctx ->> 'connection_name' as cred
from

where
