Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK) now offers greater insight into the usage of Amazon MSK resources through 19 new metrics published to Amazon CloudWatch. These metrics offer customers additional visibility into resource utilization across CPU, storage, and the network, enabling customers to maximize the performance and uptime of their Apache Kafka applications interacting with Amazon MSK.

To get started, visit the metrics documentation for a detailed list of these new metrics, the monitoring level they apply to, and how to use them.

Amazon MSK is a fully managed service for Apache Kafka that makes it easy for you to build, run and understand applications that use Apache Kafka as a data store. Amazon MSK is 100% compatible with the latest versions of Apache Kafka, which enables you to quickly migrate your existing Apache Kafka workloads to Amazon MSK with confidence or build new ones from scratch. With Amazon MSK, you spend more time innovating on applications and less time managing clusters. To learn how to get started, see the Amazon MSK Developer Guide.
