Create a Dashboard
To get started with CloudWatch dashboards, you must first create a dashboard. You can also create multiple dashboards to track metrics for your AWS resources.
To create a dashboard
Open the CloudWatch console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/cloudwatch/.
If necessary, change to the region where your resources are located. From the navigation bar, select the region that meets your needs. For more information, see Regions and Endpoints in the Amazon Web Services General Reference.
In the navigation pane, choose Dashboards.
In the content pane, choose Create dashboard.
In the Create new dashboard dialog box, type a name for the dashboard and then choose Create dashboard.
Do one of the following:
To add a graph to your dashboard, in the Add widget to dashboard dialog box, choose Metric Graph, choose Configure, and then, in the Add Graph dialog box, select the metrics to graph, and then choose Save.
To add a text block to your dashboard, in the Add widget to dashboard dialog box, choose Text Widget, choose Configure, and then, in the New text widget dialog box, in the Markdown field, add and format your text using Markdown, and then choose Create widget.
Choose Save dashboard.
