A quick search online will find lots of tools that examine your AWS logs or bills and provide a list of vm’s with low utilization. The idea, of course, is if you reduce the vm size or even delete them you’ll save money. After all, if a vm isn’t using its resources, clearly you’re spending too much on it. Plus, utilization is easy to understand as a metric to optimize against. Well, if what you’re running are just independent vm’s, this can work great.

Ask anyone how fast they want their app to run and they’ll say as quickly as possible. Ask how much they want to spend per transaction and they’ll say as little as possible. Ask how often they optimize resource allocation and parameter settings and they’ll say they test performance against the spec when they release a new service. Ask them why if cost and performance are so important they only test once and you’ll likely hear silence.

Docker internal health checks are a staple in monitoring containers as they are being deployed. However, because they aren't checking as if they were a service dependent on your service, they may lead you on a wild goose chase to find the actual problem when one does occur.
