Logging and monitoring in Amazon IoT Analytics

Amazon provides tools that you can use to monitor Amazon IoT Analytics. You can configure some of these tools to do the monitoring for you. Some of the tools require manual intervention. We recommend that you automate monitoring tasks as much as possible.

Automated monitoring tools

You can use the following automated monitoring tools to watch Amazon IoT and report when something is wrong:

  • Amazon CloudWatch Logs - Monitor, store, and access your log files from Amazon CloudTrail or other sources. For more information, see What is Amazon CloudTrail Monitoring Log Files in the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide.

  • Amazon CloudTrail log monitoring - Share log files between accounts, monitor CloudTrail log files in real time by sending them to CloudWatch Logs, write log-processing applications in Java, and validate that your log files have not changed after delivery by CloudTrail. For more information, see Working with CloudTrail log files in the Amazon CloudTrail User Guide.

Manual monitoring tools

Another important part of monitoring Amazon IoT involves manually monitoring those items that the CloudWatch alarms don't cover. The Amazon IoT, CloudWatch, and other Amazon service console dashboards provide an at-a-glance view of the state of your Amazon environment. We recommend that you also check the log files on Amazon IoT Analytics.
