Monitoring application health - AWS Elastic Beanstalk

Monitoring application health

It is important to know that your production website is available and responding to requests. Elastic Beanstalk provides features to help you monitor your application's responsiveness. It monitors statistics about your application and alerts you when thresholds are exceeded.

For information about the health monitoring provided by Elastic Beanstalk, see Basic health reporting.

You can access operational information about your application by using either the AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio or the AWS Management Console.

The toolkit displays your environment's status and application health in the Status field.
