    I only see metrics for ec2.network_in and ec2.network_out

    There are packet resources we are looking to identify in EC2.

    Thank you for the feedback.
    We will add these to our Prioritization list and will consider these when trying to add new resources to the AWS plugin.
    Just an FYI,
    Out of all the metrics mentioned, the EC2 Network In and Out metrics are collected as part of the current capability already. The other EC2 metrics mentioned such as instance_age and host_ok are non default/custom metrics in AWS, which we can add to our roadmap.
