The performance has never been an issue for us, the dashboard gives us real-time monitoring and the alert sends us the notification within less than a minute of it happening, this applies to all of the monitored resources on AWS. However we can't (or probably haven't figured out how to) integrate with any other third party services, so we can't really evaluate how it integrates with other services
AWS Config is a service that enables users to assess, audit, and
evaluate the configurations of AWS resources. Config continuously monitors
and records AWS resource configurations and allows users to automate the
evaluation of recorded configurations against desired configurations. With
Config, users can review changes in configurations and relationships between AWS
resources, dive into detailed resource configuration histories, and determine overall compliance against the configurations specified in internal
guidelines. This enables users to simplify compliance auditing, security
analysis, change management, and operational troubleshooting.
