Cloudwatch Monitoring Supported AWS Services Certification Key Topics

  • CloudWatch offers either basic or detailed monitoring for supported AWS services.
  • Basic monitoring means that a service sends data points to CloudWatch every five minutes.
  • Detailed monitoring means that a service sends data points to CloudWatch every minute.
  • If the AWS service supports both basic and detailed monitoring, the basic would be enabled by default and the detailed monitoring needs to be enabled for details metrics
