Posted on: Aug 18, 2014

We are excited to announce that the Amazon CloudWatch Logs Agent is now supported on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and CentOS. The Amazon CloudWatch Logs Agent is free of charge and can be used to quickly and easily send your log data to CloudWatch Logs from your Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances or other sources for near real-time monitoring and storage. This update adds to the existing support for Amazon Linux, Ubuntu and Windows. Customers who are already using the CloudWatch Logs Agent do not need to make any changes.
