Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) on AWS Outposts can now export database logs to Amazon CloudWatch. You can now monitor all of your Amazon RDS on AWS Outposts database instances from the same single pane of glass as your Amazon RDS database instances in our AWS Regions.

Amazon CloudWatch is a monitoring and observability service built for DevOps engineers, developers, and IT managers. CloudWatch provides you with data and actionable insights to monitor your applications, respond to system-wide performance changes, optimize resource utilization, and get a unified view of operational health. CloudWatch collects monitoring and operational data in the form of logs, metrics, traces, and events, providing you with a unified view of AWS resources, applications, and services that run on AWS and on-premises servers. You can use CloudWatch to help detect anomalous behavior in your environments, set alarms, visualize logs and metrics side by side, take automated actions, troubleshoot issues, and discover insights to keep your applications running smoothly.
