Free monitoring (cloudwatch goes free): http://aws.amazon.com/cloudwatch/

We're excited to let you know that as of today, all Amazon EC2
instances come with free Basic Monitoring metrics from our Monitoring
service, Amazon CloudWatch. You don't need to do anything to make this
happen. It's there for you to use. Simply sign in to the AWS
Management Console and select one of your active instances. You will
immediately be able to view graphs and track performance on metrics
such as CPU utilization, disk reads and writes, and network traffic.

Basic Monitoring for Amazon EC2 provides metric data on instance
performance at five-minute frequency. Customers can optionally choose
to enable Detailed Monitoring, which provides metric data at
one-minute frequency for an additional $0.015 per instance-hour.
