What is Amazon CloudWatch?

Amazon CloudWatch is a service from AWS that monitors applications and infrastructure resources, whether they are located in AWS or elsewhere, and provides actionable insights based on this. In a single platform, you can collect, analyze and act upon data from all your systems, including containers.

In addition to its graphical dashboard interface, which provides both real-time and historical data, CloudWatch can also create alarms that will send you notifications based on events related to the resources that you are monitoring. You can even automatically make changes to resources based on these events, such as launching new instances when they become needed or removing ones when they are no longer needed.

CloudWatch works automatically with EC2, and you can configure it as well to work with EBS, RDS database instances, SQS Queues, SNS Topics, and external sources of data.

You can access CloudWatch through the CloudWatch web console, the AWS CLI, the CloudWatch API and the AWS SDKs.
