In addition to Amazon CloudWatch, you now have the option to monitor your Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK) clusters using Prometheus, an open source monitoring system for time-series metrics. Open Monitoring with Prometheus enables you to monitor Amazon MSK using solutions like Datadog, Lenses, New Relic, Sumo logic, or a Prometheus server, and easily migrate your existing monitoring dashboards to Amazon MSK.

Open Monitoring with Prometheus provides clients access to JMX metrics emitted by Amazon MSK brokers and Apache Kafka within your Amazon VPC. Open Monitoring with Prometheus is offered at no additional cost and is offered in all regions where Amazon MSK is available. For more information on getting started or accessing JMX metrics using Open Monitoring with Prometheus, see the Amazon MSK developer guide.
