Working with Amazon ECS in Application Manager

With Application Manager, a capability of Amazon Systems Manager, you can view and manage your Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) cluster infrastructure. Application Manager applies a tag to your Amazon ECS cluster using the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the cluster as the tag value. Application Manager provides a component runtime view of the compute, networking, and storage resources in a cluster.


You can't manage or view operations information about your containers in Application Manager. You can only manage and view operations information about the infrastructure hosting your Amazon ECS resources.
