Amazon CloudWatch Contributor Insights for Amazon DynamoDB now supports AWS CloudFormation, enabling you to manage Contributor Insights settings for DynamoDB with CloudFormation templates.  

CloudWatch Contributor Insights for DynamoDB is a diagnostic tool that provides an at-a-glance view of your DynamoDB tables’ traffic trends and helps you identify their most frequently accessed keys. You can monitor each table’s item access patterns continuously and use Contributor Insights to provide graphs and visualizations of the table’s activity. Using this information, you can better understand the top drivers of your application’s traffic and respond appropriately to unsuccessful requests. 

See the CloudWatch pricing page for pricing details and a full list of supported AWS Regions. To learn more, see AWS::DynamoDB::Table in the CloudFormation User Guide.
