If you have a single server, checking log files is as easy as SSHing to it and viewing logs. When you move to the container world, with many servers, you need a place to aggregate and search through all of your logs. CloudWatch provides us with this and it was trivial to setup.
CloudWatch is “on by default” in Amazon. And by just configuring a few alarms you can have a near-zero-cost monitoring service of your own.
- Collect metrics for Grafana.
- Alerts for AutoScale.
- Centralized-logging: rds, ec2, app logs with CloudWatch Log
CloudWatch is used to monitor various aspects of our production infrastructure deployed at Amazon.
CloudWatch is used to monitor our servers on AWS including our EC2, RDS and ElastiCache.
