Logging and monitoring in Amazon Web Services Support and Amazon Trusted Advisor

Monitoring is an important part of maintaining the reliability, availability, and performance of Amazon Web Services Support and Amazon Trusted Advisor and your other Amazon solutions. Amazon provides the following monitoring tools to watch Amazon Web Services Support and Amazon Trusted Advisor, report when something is wrong, and take actions when appropriate:

  • Amazon CloudWatch monitors your Amazon resources and the applications that you run on Amazon 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 Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances and automatically launch new instances when needed. For more information, see the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide.

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

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