Monitor your WorkSpaces

You can use the following features to monitor your WorkSpaces.

CloudWatch metrics

Amazon WorkSpaces publishes data points to Amazon CloudWatch about your WorkSpaces. CloudWatch enables you to retrieve statistics about those data points as an ordered set of time-series data, known as metrics. You can use these metrics to verify that your WorkSpaces are performing as expected. For more information, see Monitor your WorkSpaces using CloudWatch metrics.

CloudWatch Events

Amazon WorkSpaces can submit events to Amazon CloudWatch Events when users log in to your WorkSpace. This enables you to respond when the event occurs. For more information, see Monitor your WorkSpaces using CloudWatch Events.

CloudTrail logs

Amazon CloudTrail provides a record of actions taken by a user, role, or an Amazon service in WorkSpaces. Using the information collected by CloudTrail, you can determine the request that was made to WorkSpaces, the IP address from which the request was made, who made the request, when it was made, and additional details.
