We are happy to announce the immediate availability of Amazon CloudWatch Logs subscriptions.

With subscriptions, you can access a near-real time feed of the log events being delivered to your CloudWatch Logs log groups. The log events are delivered to an Amazon Kinesis stream that you provide so that you can perform your own custom processing. Log events delivered to the Kinesis stream remain stored and available in CloudWatch based on your log group retention settings.

With Amazon CloudWatch Logs subscriptions, standard Amazon CloudWatch charges apply, as well as charges associated with your Amazon Kinesis stream, including shard hours and Put requests.

To get started with Amazon CloudWatch Logs subscriptions, see the Amazon CloudWatch Logs Developer guide. To learn more about pricing, see Amazon CloudWatch pricing and Amazon Kinesis pricing. To learn more about how CloudWatch Logs can help you better understand and operate your systems and applications, see the Amazon CloudWatch product details.
