  • Positive for alarms and alert notifications once configured/customized.
  • Has upfront learning curve, and cost can increase as does the alarm activity and monitoring details you may require.
  • Cost-effective for any size organization keeping with AWS and utilizing its native tools is a savings in long-term ROI.

  • Scalability. Saving us cost when we can downgrade underperforming instances.
  • Great monitoring and peace of mine without always having to check logs to any services failure.
  • Support cost is high. It would be nicer if documentation would be easier to follow.

  • Cloudwatch costs are below 0.5% of our AWS spend providing a very cost effective monitoring tool.
  • We're able to integrate Cloudwatch metrics into our existing monitoring solutions (Site24x7/Solarwinds/ Grafana)—all for free!
  • Due to no memory metrics, we do have to install agents on some workloads.
