Amazon CloudWatch RUM (Real User Monitoring) adds the ability for customers to include additional customer-defined metadata attributes as key-value pairs to RUM events when instrumenting their web applications. Additionally, customers are now able to use these self defined attributes as an additional filter when slicing and dicing the data in the AWS Management Console. When combined with pre-defined metadata attributes (eg. browser, device, country) that RUM supports today, customers can see a better classification of different end user activities.

CloudWatch RUM gives customers visibility into their web application’s client side performance by collecting performance and error data in real time. RUM reduces MTTR by providing visualizations that allow customers to troubleshoot and debug issues such as high page load times, error messages and stack traces. Customers can add metadata attributes in the events payload using a new API in the CloudWatch RUM Web Client (version 1.10.0). To learn more, see the user guide.
