CloudWatch Application Insights offers new, improved user interface

Posted on: Oct 12, 2020

Amazon CloudWatch Application Insights, working closely with customers, has introduced an enhanced user interface to make setting up and managing your enterprise application monitoring even more straight forward. CloudWatch Application Insights is a capability that helps enterprise customers easily setup application monitoring and enhanced observability for AWS resources. The user interface improvements streamline the steps for doing this in a more intuitive and consistent approach. 

The user interface improvements focused on keeping common functions in the same area so that users can work through one wizard to setup the application for monitoring. The new user interface comes on top of the recent additions of simple setup and monitoring for PostgreSQL databases and AWS Step Functions. For Step Functions, execution-level, activity, Lambda function, service integration and API metrics are monitored for anomalies.  

Amazon CloudWatch Application Insights provides simple setup of observability for your enterprise applications and underlying AWS resources. To get started, access the CloudWatch Application Insights setup wizard from the settings menu in the CloudWatch console. After quickly getting setup, you can use CloudWatch Automatic Dashboards to visualize problem details to assist application owners troubleshoot faster and reduce their mean time to resolution. CloudWatch Application Insights is available in all AWS public regions at no additional charge. Depending on your setup, you may incur small fees for monitoring data set up on CloudWatch.
