AWS Namespaces

CloudWatch namespaces are containers for metrics. Metrics in different namespaces are isolated from each other, so that metrics from different applications are not mistakenly aggregated into the same statistics. All AWS services that provide Amazon CloudWatch data use a namespace string, beginning with "AWS/". When you create custom metrics, you must also specify a namespace as a container for custom metrics. The following services push metric data points to CloudWatch.
