You can now use Amazon CloudWatch to monitor metrics related to VPC Traffic Mirroring. You can collect information such as amount of traffic mirrored or not mirrored on your network interface that is part of a traffic mirror session. You can also set up CloudWatch Alarms to receive notifications on any metrics crossing pre-defined thresholds. To get started with these metrics, see Monitoring Mirrored Traffic Using Amazon CloudWatch.

Amazon VPC Traffic Mirroring allows customers to replicate the network traffic from an EC2 instance within their VPC and forward that traffic to security and monitoring appliances for use cases such as content inspection, threat monitoring, and troubleshooting. You can read more about Amazon VPC Traffic Mirroring in our documentation.
