Monitoring Lookout for Metrics - Amazon Lookout for Metrics

Monitoring Lookout for Metrics

Monitoring is an important part of ensuring the reliability, availability, and performance of Amazon Lookout for Metrics and your other AWS solutions. AWS provides the following monitoring tools to watch Lookout for Metrics, report when something is wrong, and take automatic actions when appropriate:

  • Amazon CloudWatch monitors your AWS resources and the applications you run on AWS in real time. You can collect and track metrics, create customized dashboards, and set alarms that notify you or take actions when a specified metric reaches a threshold that you specify. For example, you can have CloudWatch track CPU usage or other metrics of your Amazon EC2 instances and automatically launch new instances when needed. For more information, see the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide.

  • AWS CloudTrail captures API calls and related events made by or on behalf of your AWS account and optionally 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.
