Overall Satisfaction with Amazon CloudWatch

1. With Amazon CloudWatch, we monitor the cloud resources used for our product. 2. Create various alarms for auto-scaling, increasing CPU load on EC2 instance. 3. Create custom rules to trigger other cloud resources in our product. Since we use AWS Cloud for our application, our scope is all the resources being used by our application and CloudWatch helps in monitoring all the resources across our application.
  • Provides various metrics for cloud resources
  • Logging functionality across all the cloud resources.
  • Ability to trigger events on exceptions or any user-defined actions.
  • AWS Lambda CloudWatch logs become a little tricky to analyze when used in multiple threads.
  • Searching on CloudWatch is slow if we apply multiple text filters.
  • Logging and Log Insights
  • Metrics
  • Monitoring our cloud resources is very easy with CloudWatch
  • CloudWatch helps trigger alerts wherever configured for our resources

Amazon CloudWatch is well suited for an application which is native AWS cloud based application and all the resources can be monitored and controlled using Amazon CloudWatch. If an application is deployed on Azure, Google Cloud Platform, etc. Amazon CloudWatch is not supported or well-suited in those cases and less appropriate.
