Monitoring Amazon OpenSearch Service - Amazon OpenSearch Service (successor to Amazon Elasticsearch Service)

Monitoring Amazon OpenSearch Service

Monitoring is an important part of maintaining the reliability, availability, and performance of Amazon OpenSearch Service and your other AWS solutions. AWS provides the following tools to monitor your OpenSearch Service resources, report issues, and take automatic actions when appropriate:

Amazon CloudWatch

Amazon CloudWatch monitors your OpenSearch Service resources in real time. You can collect and track metrics, create customized dashboards, and set alarms that notify you or take actions when a metric reaches a certain threshold. For more information, see the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide.

Amazon CloudWatch Logs

Amazon CloudWatch Logs lets you monitor, store, and access your OpenSearch log files. CloudWatch Logs monitors the information in log files and can notify you when certain thresholds are met. For more information, see the Amazon CloudWatch Logs User Guide.

Amazon EventBridge

Amazon EventBridge delivers a near real-time stream of system events that describe changes in your OpenSearch Service domains. You can create rules that watch for certain events, and trigger automated actions in other AWS services when these events occur. For more information, see the Amazon EventBridge User Guide.

AWS CloudTrail

AWS CloudTrail captures configuration API calls made to OpenSearch Service as events. It can deliver these events to an Amazon S3 bucket that you specify. Using this information, you can identify which users and accounts made requests, the source IP address from which the requests were made, and when the requests occurred. For more information, see the AWS CloudTrail User Guide.
