AWS Server Monitoring

Last Modified: 2015-10-01
Our environment is setup like this -

Elastic Load Balancer ----> into 3 Server instances with Ubuntu-64. This is supporting our web application. Our concern is the amount of traffic we receive and being able to monitor and spin up another server if the above 3 servers happen to reach capacity. And, if possible, not have to worry about getting a call at 3am saying the servers are down (not possible)

Does anyone have any ideas on how to 1. monitor the servers and receive reports of usage, traffic, etc.. 2. if they reach thresholds of a certain amount, have AWS spin up a new server?

Any ideas or other thoughts how to manage this would be great! Appreciate all the help!
