Today, Amazon WorkSpaces Web announced two new CloudWatch metrics for customers to monitor session performance. Administrators can conveniently enable monitoring across web portals from the Amazon CloudWatch console. These metrics provide administrators with greater insight into the in-session experience.

The new metrics provide administrators with visibility into compute and memory utilization for active sessions from a portal in 1-minute intervals and can assist when troubleshooting performance issues. Customers can also get real-time visibility into the number of concurrent sessions for each web portal by graphing the number of data points emitted by each web portal. 

CloudWatch performance metrics are available in all WorkSpaces Web regions - US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt, Ireland, London), and Asia Pacific (Mumbai, Singapore, Sydney, and Tokyo).

For customers who have already launched a web portal with active users, visit the Amazon CloudWatch console and select the metrics to graph under the AWS/WorkSpacesWeb namespace. For new customers, you can get started by adding the Free Trial offer for WorkSpaces Web to your AWS account, then visiting the Amazon WorkSpaces Web Console and creating your first web portal, today.
