Finding Datomic Resources by Tag

Datomic tags resources it creates with the following tag:

Tag NameTag ValueResources Tagged
datomic:systemSystem Nameall taggable resources

You can use this tag to locate all the resources associated with a Datomic system. From the Tag Editor:

  1. Under Regions, Enter one or more AWS regions
  2. Under Resource types, choose "All resource types"
  3. Under Tags, choose the name "datomic:system" for tag key
  4. Under the same row in Tags, enter a specific System Name for tag value, or leave the tag value blank to find resources for all Datomic Systems.

Cloudwatch Logs

Datomic Compute Resources write Cloudwatch Logs as follows:

  • The "Log Group" name is the name of the Compute Resources
  • Each EC instance will create a log stream named by the convention {system}-{group}-{instance-id}-{timestamp}
