You can now use Amazon CloudWatch to monitor the performance of Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS) when using subscription filter policies. 

SNS is a fully managed publish/subscribe messaging service for high throughput, highly reliable message delivery. The message filtering capability of SNS offloads message filtering logic from subscribers as well as routing logic from publishers. This simplifies pub/sub architectures. Once you deploy SNS solutions, Amazon CloudWatch metrics monitor how many messages are filtered based on the filter policy, and how many are filtered due to missing or invalid message attributes. This enables you to validate the operation of subscription filter policies and more easily troubleshoot during development phases.

Amazon SNS message filtering support for Amazon CloudWatch metrics is available now, in all AWS regions.
