We are excited to announce AWS OpsWorks now offers a convenient view of the Amazon CloudWatch metrics generated by your OpsWorks instances. Without any additional costs or setup you can see thirteen one-minute metrics that provide an overview of the state of your instances. All metrics are automatically collected, grouped, and filtered. You can start with an overview of CPU, memory and load summarized by stack and then drill down to specific layers and instances. All metrics can be used to create alarms via Amazon CloudWatch.

A few clicks in the the AWS Management Console are all it takes to get your first application running on AWS OpsWorks. You can learn more by reading how to use the OpsWorks monitoring view.
