Amazon CloudWatch Logs Search and Console Updates

Posted on: Jun 23, 2015

We are happy to announce support for searching your log events in the Amazon CloudWatch console. Also, you can now view log events across multiple log streams from a single log group in one place.

With this update, you can search for specific words or patterns in your logs to help you quickly find the information you need. For example, you can search for the word "Exception" in your application logs, HTTP 400 errors in your web request logs or a user name in your AWS CloudTrail logs. All of your log events can be searched no matter how old they are.

If you already have logs in Amazon CloudWatch Logs, you can get started immediately by clicking the "Search Events" button when viewing log streams in a log group in the CloudWatch console.
