Amazon CloudWatch Examples

Amazon CloudWatch (CloudWatch) is a web service that monitors your Amazon Web Services (AWS) resources and applications you run on AWS in real time. You can use CloudWatch to collect and track metrics, which are variables you can measure for your resources and applications. CloudWatch alarms send notifications or automatically make changes to the resources you are monitoring based on rules that you define.

For more information about using the CloudWatch client classes, see Class: AWS.CloudWatch, Class: AWS.CloudWatchEvents, and Class: AWS.CloudWatchLogs in the API reference.
