AWS App Mesh Metric Extension is now generally available. With the Metric Extension, customers can collect and filter aggregated App Mesh service metrics that help with debugging, simplify monitoring, and reduce usage costs. App Mesh Metric Extension is available to all customers running workloads on Amazon EC2, Amazon ECS, Amazon EKS, and self-managed Kubernetes. AWS App Mesh is a service mesh that provides application-level networking to make it easy for your services to communicate with each other across multiple types of compute infrastructure.

App Mesh Metric Extension improves end-to-end experience for customers. Aggregated metrics can be automatically sent to integrated endpoints, such as Amazon CloudWatch or Datadog, based on customers’ selections. This reduces the total the number of metrics sent to CloudWatch and its usage cost. In addition, Metrics Extension makes it simpler and easier for those customers who query metrics in AWS Console directly.
