Log management

AMS log management collects, aggregates, and controls retention of the logs from the managed account. AWS log management aggregates logs from Amazon EC2 instances and AWS resources deployed within your account into CloudWatch Logs. The full list of services from which logs are currently aggregated can be found in AMS aggregated service logs.

What Is log management?

Log management is the process of dealing with log events generated by instances, applications, and AWS services. This feature defines how AMS processes, stores, and rotates the log events generated in your managed AWS account. Infrastructure logs are used during incident resolution and to support system audits.
