To index and profile network assets in a cloud infrastructure or in a combination of cloud and traditional infrastructure, Lumeta has introduced in Lumeta 3.3.2, Cloud Discovery. This new discovery type will enable you to monitor a Cloud network in as much detail as a typical corporate network. Lumeta Cloud Discovery leverages the cloud service provider's APIs to create devices for all running instances. Cloud Discovery findings are reported in the same manner as all other Lumeta discovery types.
Cloud credentials are encrypted within Lumeta 3.3.2, yet are accessible to the cloud provider. This means that all APIs that return a cloud-discovery configuration, including those that export a collector configuration or system configuration, do not include cloud credential "secrets." Rather, clientSecrets and secretKeys are reported as "null" or left empty.
Currently, Cloud Discovery uses the Scout you configure, yet the particular Scout's interface cannot be specified.
Within AWS, users must be, at a minimum, AWS IAM group members with the AWS Policy of AmazonEC2ReadOnlyAccess.
Configuring Cloud Discovery
To configure Cloud Discovery:
- Browse to Settings > Zones.
- Select the zone and collector you want to perform Cloud discovery.
Click the Cloud tab.
Cloud discovery is initially disabled.
Click Edit and the Enable Cloud Discovery checkbox.
The configuration is saved.
- Upload your cloud credentials as a plain text file, ordered as you would have them read by Lumeta (i.e., top will be read first). You may download a sample file to see the formatting.
