Amazon CloudWatch dashboards hosted by Systems Manager

Amazon CloudWatch dashboards are customizable home pages in the CloudWatch console that you can use to monitor your resources in a single view, even those resources that are spread across different Amazon Web Services Regions. You can use CloudWatch dashboards to create customized views of the metrics and alarms for your Amazon resources. With dashboards, you can create the following:

  • A single view for selected metrics and alarms to help you assess the health of your resources and applications across one or more Amazon Web Services Regions. You can select the color used for each metric on each graph, so that you can track the same metric across multiple graphs.

  • An operational playbook that provides guidance for team members during operational events about how to respond to specific incidents.

  • A common view of critical resource and application measurements that can be shared by team members for faster communication flow during operational events.

You can create dashboards by using the console, the Amazon Command Line Interface (Amazon CLI), or by using the CloudWatch PutDashboard API. For more information, see Using Amazon CloudWatch Dashboards in the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide.
