Monitoring Amazon Inspector Using CloudWatch

You can monitor Amazon Inspector using Amazon CloudWatch, which collects and processes raw data into readable, near real-time metrics. These statistics are recorded in CloudWatch so that you can access historical information and gain a better perspective on how Amazon Inspector is performing.

By default, Amazon Inspector sends metric data to CloudWatch in 5-minute periods. You can use the AWS Management Console, the AWS CLI, or an API to list the metrics that Amazon Inspector sends to CloudWatch.

For more information about Amazon CloudWatch, see the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide.
