Detect & correct EBS volumes with low IOPS

Overview

EBS volumes with lower than 16k base IOPS should be using gp3 rather than the more costly io1/io2 volumes types.

This query trigger detects io type EBS volumes with low IOPS 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_with_low_iops_trigger_enabled should be set to true as the default is false.
  • ebs_volumes_with_low_iops_trigger_schedule should be set to your desired running schedule
  • ebs_volumes_with_low_iops_default_action should be set to your desired action (i.e. "notify" for notifications or "delete_volume" to delete 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,
'/',
region,
'/',
account_id,
']'
) as title,
volume_id,
region,
_ctx ->> 'connection_name' as cred
from
aws_ebs_volume
where
volume_type in ('io1', 'io2')
and iops <= 16000
