Today, Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR) launched the ability to monitor repository pull statistics through Amazon CloudWatch. The new pull statistics helps you to monitor usage patterns or identify anomalous behavior by observing image pull requests per repository.

Amazon CloudWatch will now provide you statistics on the number of images pulled from your private ECR repository by default. With additional insights customers can identify commonly accessed repositories, understand adoption of new repositories, or have better insights on repository usage. Customers facing service limits can use this data to understand which repositories are seeing the greatest number of image pulls or to uncover anomalous behavior that is driving unnecessary pull requests.
