CloudWatch Agent
  • There are two types of CloudWatch Agents:
    • CloudWatch Logs Agent - Older version with less logging capabilities.
    • CloudWatch Unified Agent - Newer version with features such as additional metrics and centralized management with SSM parameter store.
  • The unified CloudWatch agent enables you to do the following:
    • Collect more system-level metrics from Amazon EC2 instances across operating systems.
    • Collect system-level metrics from on-premises servers.
      • These can include servers in a hybrid environment as well as servers not managed by AWS.
    • Retrieve custom metrics from your applications or services.
  • You can store and view the metrics that you collect with the CloudWatch agent in CloudWatch just as you can with any other CloudWatch metrics.
