You can now use the CloudWatch Agent procstat plugin to monitor system utilization of individual processes. You can also create multiple configuration files for greater flexibility in defining core and custom configurations to collect metrics and logs from your Amazon EC2 instances and on-premise servers. 

To learn more, please visit the CloudWatch agent user guide for Procstat plugin and multiple agent configuration files.

To get started with the CloudWatch agent, you can use AWS CloudFormation templates to install and update the agent on Amazon EC2 instances, install directly from the AWS SSM console, or download from our S3 bucket for standalone installs. CloudWatch agent is available in all AWS public regions, including AWS GovCloud and China regions. Please visit our documentation to learn more about Amazon CloudWatch.
