Today we are announcing the availability of two new Amazon CloudWatch metrics for Amazon Interactive Video Service (Amazon IVS). You can use these metrics to monitor the performance of your live streams. The new ConcurrentStreams metric provides a count of your channels which are streaming live and the new ConcurrentViews metric provides the number of simultaneous views across all your live channels and for any individual channel.  

These new metrics are available along with other CloudWatch metrics for Amazon IVS on the AWS Management Console and AWS CLI. To learn how to setup a Cloudwatch Dashboard that uses CloudWatch metrics and Amazon EventBridge Events to monitor the performance of your live streams visit AWS Media Blog.

Amazon Interactive Video Service (Amazon IVS) is a managed live streaming solution that is quick and easy to set up, and ideal for creating interactive video experiences. Send your live streams to Amazon IVS using standard streaming software like Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) and the service does everything you need to make low-latency live video available to any viewer around the world, letting you focus on building interactive experiences alongside the live video.

The Amazon IVS console and APIs for control and creation of video streams are available in the US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), and Europe (Ireland) regions. Video ingest and delivery are available around the world over a managed network of infrastructure optimized for live video.
