Amazon CloudWatch

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 Amazon services when these events occur. For more information, see the Amazon EventBridge User Guide.

Amazon CloudTrail

Amazon 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 Amazon CloudTrail User Guide.
