Ohai EC2 hints/facts


#1

Is anyone using an ohai plugin that probes the AWS tags assigned to a given
EC2 instance? ISTR that it’s not something exposed in the base metadata
URLs, but it would be handy for us. Basically, any EC2 node that is part of
an ElasticBeanstalk has a tag set on the EC2 instance with the name of the
ElasticBeanstalk application. Being able to add this information to our
hoptoad error reports, and ideally to our syslog lines, would be very
helpful rather than constantly needing to look up and match a generic EC2
hostname to a given service stack.

Thanks!
