Amazon VPC Flow Logs is now available in the Beijing (China) region. VPC Flow Logs is a feature that enables you to capture information about the IP traffic going to and from your VPC. Once enabled for a particular VPC, VPC subnet or Elastic Network Interface (ENI), relevant network traffic will be logged to CloudWatch Logs for storage and analysis by your own applications or third-party tools. Additionally, metrics can be created to identify trends and patterns. 

VPC Flow Logs can be configured using the AWS Management Console, the Command Line Interface (CLI) and through the AWS SDK. VPC Flow Logs is now available in the US East (Northern Virginia), US West (Northern California), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Europe (Ireland), Europe (Frankfurt), South America (Sao Paulo), China (Beijing) and US GovCloud regions.
