Overview of AWS Monitoring

AWS monitoring enables you to keep track of your AWS infrastructure and optimize the performance of your AWS resources. AWS monitoring can help you obtain end-to-end visibility, detect anomalies, perform root cause analysis using logs, ensure high uptime, maintain cloud security, and comply with internal and external standards.

AWS performance monitoring tools help you track and fine-tune the resource settings. These tools provide a platform where different AWS services can be coordinated, viewed, and monitored from an interface. Traditional monitoring tools may not be equipped to monitor distributed environments. But modern performance monitoring tools ensure enhanced security and high availability of resources and optimize AWS resource allocation.

The best practices for AWS monitoring include:

  • Drilled-down monitoring of individual resources.
  • Optimized AWS resource usage.
  • Monitoring with on-demand scaling.
  • Automations to remediate issues.
  • Alerts to inform you about threshold breaches.

Check out this page for over 150 resource-level AWS best practices provided by Site24x7 AWS monitoring.
