Visualizing EC2

I hacked up a small application over the weekend to visualize EC2 instances at one place. Python/boto/web.py does the work of retrieving the data and JS (GraphDracula) displays it.

The need for this rose at work - where we use EC2 to host our infrastructure. The original intention behind it was an easier way to view things like
  • Which availability zone has which instances
  • Open ports between security groups
  • Which security group has which instances
  • and so on
Not all of this has been done yet, but will be.
Here it is on Github - https://github.com/talonx/ec2viz
