Overview of AWS monitoring
What is AWS monitoring?
AWS monitoring is the process of tracking and optimizing the performance of your AWS infrastructure. It enables you to gain complete end-to-end visibility of your resources, detect anomalies, perform root cause analysis using logs, ensure high uptime, maintain cloud security, and meet internal and external compliance standards.
What is the importance of having an AWS monitoring tool?
An AWS monitoring tool is essential for tracking and optimizing resource settings in the Amazon cloud. With these tools, you can coordinate, view, and monitor different AWS services from a single interface. Unlike traditional monitoring tools, these tools are specifically designed to monitor distributed environments, ensuring enhanced security and high availability of resources. With an AWS monitoring tool, you can optimize resource allocation and ensure that your AWS environment is operating at peak performance.
What are the best practices for AWS cloud monitoring?
To ensure effective AWS monitoring, there are several best practices that you should consider. These include:
- Conduct drilled-down monitoring of individual resources to identify potential issues and optimize their usage.
- Optimize your AWS resource usage by identifying underutilized resources, consolidating redundant resources, and right sizing your resources.
- Monitor your resources with on-demand scaling to respond to changes in demand quickly and maintain optimal performance.
- Use automations to remediate issues automatically and proactively prevent potential problems.
- Configure alerts for threshold breaches, such as resource utilization exceeding a certain threshold or instances being down, to take appropriate action promptly.
