Amazon CloudWatch Anomaly Detection is now available in AWS GovCloud (US) Regions. Anomaly Detection applies machine-learning algorithms to continuously analyze system and application metrics, determine a normal baseline, and surface anomalies with minimal user intervention. You can use Anomaly Detection to isolate and troubleshoot unexpected changes in your metric behavior.  

You can apply CloudWatch Anomaly Detection on metrics in your account, including custom and AWS vended metrics. CloudWatch Anomaly Detection will automatically determine a range of expected behavior, which you can optionally customize by specifying data exclusion periods, anomaly sensitivity, and the daylight-saving time zone. You can create alarms to notify you when anomalies occur and visualize the expected behavior on a metric graph. 

It is easy to get started with Anomaly Detection. In the CloudWatch console, choose Alarms in the navigation pane to create an alarm based on Anomaly detection, or start with Metrics to overlay the metric’s expected values onto the graph as a band. You can also enable Anomaly Detection using the AWS Command Line Interface, AWS SDKs, or AWS CloudFormation templates.
