AWS Direct Connect is announcing general availability of Amazon CloudWatch monitoring for customers’ physical connections to all AWS Regions worldwide except China. AWS Direct Connect customers can now use Amazon CloudWatch Metrics to monitor their physical connections, and use Amazon CloudWatch Alarms to notify them of changes in their physical AWS Direct Connect connection and to trigger actions with the help of Amazon SNS topics. 

Each physical AWS Direct Connect connection now posts up to 8 metrics that are available on customers’ AWS Direct Connect and Amazon CloudWatch consoles and also through AWS CLI. For more information about the metrics, see AWS Direct Connect Monitoring. Start using metrics today!
