Amazon CloudWatch

CloudWatch is a great low-cost solution for infrastructure monitoring and alerting if you are an AWS customer. You basically get it for free and requires little setup. If you are not on AWS, you can't enjoy the benefits of CloudWatch, so if you are running multi-cloud, need to think about how you will monitor all of your resources and assets.

Cons

  • Building cloudwatch dashboards can be cumbersome. You have to navigate through various screens to get the metrics you want to add.
  • Exporting alarm / alerting data is not available for further post-processing or analysis
  • You have to build alerts and alarms yourself. CloudWatch does not give you any recommendations, so you have to know what you're doing.

  • Monitoring interface should be more user friendly.

Alternatives Considered

CloudWatch's log search features are impoverished compared to PaperTrail's or Loggly's. However, CloudWatch aggregates logs from Lambda, ECS, API Gateway and more out-of-the-box. You do not need to manage anything. You do not need to worry about an errant logging configuration saturating your NAT's bandwidth. CloudWatch is not an APM like New Relic or Datadog, but it does provide some instrumentation. CloudWatch metrics for EC2 is most comparable to Nagios.
