Amazon CloudWatch announces the availability of “Metrics to Logs” - a feature that helps customers pivot from a high level view of system or application behavior in a graph to the specific log events that caused the behavior. This complements the existing ability to extract aggregated metrics using metric filter patterns from log data as it streams through the CloudWatch services. Metrics created using metric filter patterns now have a View Logs option that help customers navigate to the associated logs groups from a graph to a chosen time stamp. This unifies the Logs and Metrics experiences to help customers solve problems faster.  

This new capability is currently available in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt), S. America (São Paulo), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Mumbai) and Asia Pacific (Sydney).
