Logging and monitoring in Amazon Glue

You can automate the running of your ETL (extract, transform, and load) jobs. Amazon Glue provides metrics for crawlers and jobs that you can monitor. After you set up the Amazon Glue Data Catalog with the required metadata, Amazon Glue provides statistics about the health of your environment. You can automate the invocation of crawlers and jobs with a time-based schedule based on cron. You can also trigger jobs when an event-based trigger fires.

Amazon Glue is integrated with Amazon CloudTrail, a service that provides a record of actions taken by a user, role, or Amazon service in Amazon Glue. If you create a trail, you can enable continuous delivery of CloudTrail events to an Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket, Amazon CloudWatch Logs, and Amazon CloudWatch Events. Every event or log entry contains information about who generated the request.

Use Amazon CloudWatch Events to automate your Amazon services and respond automatically to system events such as application availability issues or resource changes. Events from Amazon services are delivered to CloudWatch Events in near-real time. You can write simple rules to indicate which events are of interest and what automated actions to take when an event matches a rule.

An important facet of security in the cloud is logging. You must configure logging in a way that does not capture secrets and confidential material while capturing information necessary to debug and secure your cloud infastructure. Make sure to familizarize yourself with what is being logged.
