[Check_mk (english)] CheckMK AWS Monitoring - GetMetricData API

Hello Andreas,

I have just enabled the AWS monitoring and did not do any additional 
setup/configure at my CheckMK or AWS account for fetching info. I just 
created an entry in datasource program and choose EC2, RDS for two 
regions. As per the billing happened to me, just enabling the EC2 in 
data source program fetches data using "GetMetricData API" for 
monitoring and this is by default I guess.

Thanks & Regards,
