In this section, we discuss how to monitor your gateway, including its volumes associated with the gateway (both gateway-cached and gateway-stored) and the upload buffer. You use the AWS Management Console to view metrics for your gateway. For example, you can view the number of bytes used in read and write operations, the time spent in read and write operations, and the time to retrieve data from the AWS cloud. With metrics, you can track the health of your gateway and set up alarms to notify you when one or more metrics are outside a defined threshold.
AWS Storage Gateway provides Amazon CloudWatch metrics at no additional charge. AWS Storage Gateway metrics are recorded for a period of two weeks, allowing you access to historical information and providing you with a better perspective of how your gateway and volumes are performing. For detailed information about Amazon CloudWatch, go to the Amazon CloudWatch Developer Guide.
