With this update, you can now view Amazon CloudWatch graphs to monitor the health and performance of your AWS resources from OpsCenter, a feature of Systems Manager, without navigating across multiple consoles. OpsCenter enables you to view, investigate, and resolve operational items, also known as OpsItems, for AWS resources.

For example, while troubleshooting an OpsItem for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), you can see CloudWatch graphs that display the trend for CPU utilization and network traffic along with disk-related metrics. OpsCenter recommends applicable runbooks such as RestartEC2Instance or StopEC2Instance, and automatically pre-fills required values such as Instance ID for quicker resolution time. In each OpsItem, the list of runbooks is automatically filtered to reflect recommended runbooks for the specific issue.

This update is now available in all AWS Regions where AWS Systems Manager is offered. To learn more, visit the AWS Systems Manager product page and documentation.
