You can now use the updated Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) console in the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD and the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet. The updated console makes it even easier for you to create and manage your file system resources. In addition to a refreshed look and feel, you can create file systems configured with the recommended settings in just a few clicks and you can customize your view to quickly find information you’re looking for. You can also monitor your file system’s behavior using Amazon CloudWatch metrics and alarms natively in the Amazon EFS console.

For monitoring, any Amazon CloudWatch alarms you have configured for your Amazon EFS file system metrics will be displayed in the Amazon EFS console. The console now includes a dashboard that uses Amazon CloudWatch Metric Math to display throughput and IOPS utilization along with other Amazon EFS metrics, enabling you to understand your file system’s behavior against its limits and take action, if required.  

The updated Amazon EFS console is now available in all commercial Amazon Web Services regions and Amazon Web Services China Regions. You can learn more by reading our blog about the updated Amazon EFS console, the Amazon EFS documentation, and log into the Amazon EFS console to get started.
