We are excited to announce Zoom & Pan, and Leaderboard chart visualization options in CloudWatch Metrics console and CloudWatch Dashboards. You can use the CloudWatch console to graph metric data generated by AWS services and your applications. Now, you can zoom into a shorter time period such as one minute or five minutes while viewing the metric graph at a longer interval. To zoom into a metric graph please click and drag your mouse across the graph for the period needed. Once zoomed, you can also pan the metric graph across your selected interval, but at a zoomed detail level. To reset the zoom, simply click the zoom-out button at the top. In addition, you can also view a leaderboard of all the graphed metrics when you hover over the graph. The leaderboard shows a list of metrics and the values in the order they appear at a selected time. The Zoom & Pan, and Leaderboard visualization options are also available in CloudWatch Dashboards.  

The new visualization options are available in all AWS Public Regions and AWS GovCloud (US) region. To know more about viewing metrics in CloudWatch, please visit here.
