Amazon CloudWatch improved significantly over the years. It's time to look at its monitoring capabilities again. CloudWatch is an excellent starting point to implement enhanced monitoring on AWS. In this episode, Michael demonstrates what you can do with CloudWatch metrics and alarms. Metrics provide a time-series database for telemetry (e.g., CPU utilization of an EC2 instance). Alarms watch a metric and trigger actions if a threshold is reached.
We are two brothers focusing 100% on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Every other week, one of us prepares the topic of the podcast. The topic is not known to the other one, which results in surprising conversations about all things AWS. Typically, we are covering the following topics: DevOps, Serverless, Container, Security, Infrastructure as Code, Container, Continuous Deployment, S3, EC2, RDS, VPC, IAM, VPC, and many more.
