In normal cases, CloudWatch works well. It's simple to implement and very cheap but it does not provide real-time monitoring and its UI is quite simple.

The tool collects a great deal of data, and data that's not available many other places. But the data is hidden in obscure places, and the logs are hard to read and follow. The user interface could use a heavy rework, and several companies have made a business out of scraping the data and presenting it better.
