Monitor Resources in Multiple Regions Using a CloudWatch Dashboard

You can monitor AWS resources in multiple regions using a single CloudWatch dashboard. For example, you can create a dashboard that shows CPU utilization for an EC2 instance located in the us-west-2 region with your billing metrics, which are located in the us-east-1 region.

To monitor resources in multiple regions in one dashboard

  1. Open the CloudWatch console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/cloudwatch/.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Metrics.

  3. In the navigation bar, select a region.

  4. Select the metrics to add to your dashboard.

  5. For Actions, choose Add to dashboard.

  6. In the Add to dashboard dialog box, for Add to, type a name for the new dashboard and choose Add to dashboard.

    Alternatively, to add to an existing dashboard, choose Existing dashboard, choose a dashboard, and then choose Add to dashboard.

  7. Select the next region and repeat these steps to add metrics from this region.

  8. Choose Save dashboard.
