amazon web services – How to setup permissions for an AWS IAM user to allow them to start and stop an EC2 server

I have an EC2 server and need to setup an IAM user account which can start and stop the machine from the web console. I am having trouble determining which permissions are needed in a policy to accomplish this. What should the group policy look like to allow users in the group to view, start, and stop an EC2 instance?

amazon web services – How to stop requests on PHP server while it is running cron job sheduled PHP script?

I have a situation when some DDOS attacks are putting my PHP server down. Occasionally.

I’m using AWS with auto scaling groups, so it is not a problem.

The problems start when this server is going down in the middle of the cron job scheduled PHP script.

So my idea was to block all of the routs on the PHP servers except for the /healthcheck

How can I do that and is there a better solution?

amazon web services – AWS XFS performance issues. Stripped setup vs single disk setup

I wanted to share an issue (I guess I may be misunderstanding some concepts) that I’m facing with some benchmarks I’m doing to XFS setups, as we are going to recently migrate a service to a new instance and we would like to have the max. amount of IOPS possible.

We have a Gitolite instance that currently works with a 500GB io1 volume (25K IOPS), we would like to move this service to a new instance and I was considering the possibility of improving the underlying filesystem.
At this moment the filesystem the instance has it’s XFS on top of LVM on that single volume.

I have been doing some benchmarks on moving the service to an instance with:

  • 8 volumes of 50GB – 2500IOPS each of those

These 8 volumes are included in the same LVM group in an stripped configuration. The commands I used to create this stripped setup are:

## Create the LVM PV's

$ pvcreate /dev/nvme(12345678)n1

## Create the volume group:

$ vgcreate test_vol /dev/nvme(12345678)n1

## Create the stripe configuration:

$ lvcreate --extents 100%FREE --stripes 8 --stripesize 256 --name test test_vol

## XFS format the new volume:

$ mkfs.xfs /dev/mapper/test_vol-root -f

And that should be it. Now, benchmarks.

Running this fio test over this virtual volume:

io --name randwrite --ioengine=libaio --iodepth=2 --rw=randwrite --bs=4k --size=400G --numjobs=8 --runtime=300 --group_reporting --filename=/test/testfile --fallocate=none

Shows the following report:

Jobs: 8 (f=8): (w(8))(100.0%)(w=137MiB/s)(w=35.1k IOPS)(eta 00m:00s)
randwrite: (groupid=0, jobs=8): err= 0: pid=627615: Wed Nov 25 13:15:33 2020
  write: IOPS=23.0k, BW=93.7MiB/s (98.2MB/s)(27.4GiB/300035msec); 0 zone resets
    slat (usec): min=2, max=132220, avg=141.07, stdev=2149.78
    clat (usec): min=3, max=132226, avg=143.46, stdev=2150.25

Which is not bad at all, but executing the very same fio benchmark on another instance with a single volume of 500GB (25K IOPS) shows:

Jobs: 8 (f=8): (w(8))(100.0%)(w=217MiB/s)(w=55.6k IOPS)(eta 00m:00s)
randwrite: (groupid=0, jobs=8): err= 0: pid=11335: Wed Nov 25 12:54:57 2020
  write: IOPS=48.2k, BW=188MiB/s (198MB/s)(55.2GiB/300027msec); 0 zone resets
    slat (usec): min=2, max=235750, avg=130.69, stdev=1861.69

Which is by far much better output than the stripped setup.

We are going to use this instance to host an internal Git server, so I was assuming than an stripped setup would be much better than an instance with a single volume, but those benchmarks show the best setup (in terms of IOPS/bandwidth) is the one with the single disk.

Am I assuming anything wrong? Will the stripped setup work better for random writers(ie. not running out of IOPS)

amazon web services – Link between two containers in two different ECS clusters

I’m looking for the best way to get access to a service running in container in ECS cluster “A” from another container running in ECS cluster “B”.
I don’t want to make any ports public.

Currently I found a way to have it working in the same VPC – by adding security group of instance of cluster “B” to inbound rule of security group of cluster “A”, after that services from cluster “A” are available in containers running in “B” by ‘private ip address’.

But that requires this security rule to be added (which is not convenient) and won’t work for different regions. Maybe there’s better solution which covers both cases – same VPC and region and different VPCs and regions?
