Amazon CloudWatch is the component of Amazon Web Services that provides real-time monitoring of AWS resources and customer applications running on Amazon infrastructure. CloudWatch can collect metrics, set and manage alarms, and automatically react to changes in your AWS resources. Amazon Web Services Cloudwatch can monitor AWS resources such as Amazon EC2 instances, DynamoDB tables, and Amazon RDS DB instances. You can also create custom metrics generated by your applications and services and any log files your applications generate. There are a lot of advantages of Amazon CloudWatch.
Amazon CloudWatch allows you to access all your data from a single platform. It is natively integrated with more than 70+ AWS services. Amazon CloudWatch Logs let you monitor, process, store, and access log files from Amazon EC2 instances, AWS CloudTrail, Lambda functions, VPC flow logs, or other sources. With CloudWatch Logs, Cloud Administrator can troubleshoot AWS infrastructure and applications using an existing system, application, and custom log files from applications.
Our AWS consultants can publish your metrics to CloudWatch by using the AWS CLI or an API. You can view statistical graphs of published metrics with the AWS Management Console. CloudWatch stores data about a metric as a series of data points. Each data point has an associated time stamp. You can even publish an aggregated set of data points called a statistic set.
CloudWatch Alarms feature allows to watch CloudWatch metrics and to receive notifications when the metrics fall outside of the levels (high or low thresholds) that is configured. Our AWS consultants can attach multiple Alarms to each metric and each one can have multiple actions.
Scalability can be implemented with the help of CloudWatch. Nub8’s client uses Amazon CloudWatch with Auto Scaling groups to monitor CPU usage and to scale from three Amazon EC2 instances to nine during peak periods automatically.
4. Auto Recovery
Auto Recovery can be implemented with the help of CloudWatch. If an instance fails a system status check, you can use CloudWatch to automatically reboot or recover it.
5. Operational Costs
