Now enterprises with Oracle databases can easily setup monitoring, alerting and dashboards for their EC2 and RDS Oracle instances on AWS with CloudWatch Application Insights. CloudWatch Application Insights is a capability that helps customers simply setup monitoring and enhanced observability for their enterprise applications running on AWS resources. The new feature automatically setups the metrics, telemetry and logs for monitoring the health and wellness of Oracle databases running in AWS. 

With just a few clicks Application Insights provides customers with the peace of mind of knowing that their enterprise databases on SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL and now Oracle running on EC2 or RDS are being properly monitored and observed. For Oracle databases, as is done with all the above databases, Application Insights will automatically setup monitoring services or if you prefer you can choose the Oracle application tier and assign it to your resource group. With either method, you can of course still configure and change the selections. 

Amazon CloudWatch Application Insights provides simple setup of observability for your enterprise applications and underlying AWS resources. Use Amazon CloudWatch Automatic Dashboards to visualize problem details, accelerate troubleshooting, and reduce the mean time to resolution. Amazon CloudWatch Application Insights is available in all AWS public regions at no additional charge. You only pay for monitoring resources set up on Amazon CloudWatch.
