Amazon S3 Storage Lens, a cloud storage analytics feature for organization-wide visibility into object storage usage and activity, now includes support for Amazon CloudWatch. You can now create a unified view of your operational health to monitor any of your S3 Storage Lens metrics alongside other application metrics using CloudWatch dashboards.
CloudWatch support in S3 Storage Lens makes it easier to access and take action on S3 Storage Lens metrics. Once enabled, you can add S3 Storage Lens metrics to your customized CloudWatch dashboard to visualize storage trends alongside other operational metrics. You can receive notifications using CloudWatch alarms and triggered actions based on changes in storage usage, such as an increase in incomplete multipart upload bytes in your account. In addition, you can now use the CloudWatch API to develop applications that access S3 Storage Lens metrics, or to enable access via integrated AWS partners.
Amazon S3 Storage Lens is available in all AWS Regions, as well as the AWS China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the AWS China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. S3 Storage Lens advanced metrics and recommendations includes support for CloudWatch for no additional charge.
