You can now deliver Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) Flow Logs directly to Amazon Kinesis Firehose, allowing you to stream your flow logs real-time to destinations supported by Amazon Kinesis Firehose or downstream logging solutions via custom HTTP endpoints.
VPC Flow Logs enable you to capture and log information about your VPC network traffic. Until today, you could deliver VPC Flow Logs to Amazon CloudWatch Logs and Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3). With this release, you can now stream your flow logs in real-time to supported Amazon Kinesis Firehose destinations. In addition, you can also use AWS Lambda functions on Amazon Kinesis to enrich or transform the VPC Flow logs while delivering them to downstream logging solutions.
VPC Flow Log delivery to Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose is available through the AWS Management Console, the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI), and the AWS Software Development Kit (AWS SDK). To get started, simply create a new flow log subscription and select Amazon Kinesis Firehose as a destination.
