Monitoring Your Resources with Amazon Route 53 Health Checks and Amazon CloudWatch

You can monitor your resources by creating Amazon Route 53 health checks, which use CloudWatch to collect and process raw data into readable, near real-time metrics. These statistics are recorded for a period of two weeks, so that you can access historical information and gain a better perspective on how your resources are performing. By default, metric data for Route 53 health checks is automatically sent to CloudWatch at one-minute intervals.

For more information about Route 53 health checks, see Monitoring Health Checks Using CloudWatch. For more information about CloudWatch, see What Is Amazon CloudWatch? in the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide.
