Agent to enable remote management of your Amazon EC2 instance configuration
The SSM Agent runs on EC2 instances and enables you to quickly and easily
execute remote commands or scripts against one or more instances. The agent
uses SSM documents. When you execute a command, the agent on the instance
processes the document and configures the instance as specified. Currently,
the SSM Agent and Run Command enable you to quickly run Shell scripts on an
instance using the AWS-RunShellScript SSM document.
