Monitoring AWS Ground Station

Monitoring is an important part of maintaining the reliability, availability, and performance of AWS Ground Station. AWS provides the following monitoring tools to watch AWS Ground Station, report when something is wrong, and take automatic actions when appropriate:

  • Amazon CloudWatch Events delivers a near real-time stream of system events that describe changes in AWS resources. CloudWatch Events enables automated event-driven computing, as you can write rules that watch for certain events and trigger automated actions in other AWS services when these events happen. For more information, see the Amazon CloudWatch Events User Guide.

  • AWS CloudTrail captures API calls and related events made by or on behalf of your AWS account and delivers the log files to an Amazon S3 bucket that you specify. You can identify which users and accounts called AWS, the source IP address from which the calls were made, and when the calls occurred. For more information, see the AWS CloudTrail User Guide.
