Once upon a time, based on the large quantity of websites saying that all I needed to install to administer Amazon services including CloudWatch and Auto-Scaling Groups was the "ec2-api-tools" package. However, as I try to recreate some steps found in pages like this, I find I cannot succeed due to missing commands.
I'm assuming these commands were simply refactored, but searching for, e.g., mon-describe-alarms or mon-put-metric-alarm with apt-file yields no results. It's as if someone decided, "Nawww...nobody will need these!" and removed them from ec2-api-tools with no substitution provided.
Does anyone know what happened, and/or where I can find an Ubuntu package for the CloudWatch tools? Many thanks in advance!
