    AWS CloudWatch is a useful monitoring service provided by the AWS cloud. It provides default monitoring for server parameters like CPU Utilization, Network In, Network Out, etc. Learn how to send Linux application logs to AWS CloudWatch in this HowtoForge tutorial.


    AWS CloudWatch can be used for custom monitoring like disk utilization and memory (RAM) utilization. For custom monitoring, we need to follow some steps to get it monitored. 

    In the same way, AWS CloudWatch can be used to monitor the server or application logs. As this is not a default feature from AWS for obvious reasons, we can configure it as per our requirements. It will depend on the user what logs we need to send to AWS CloudWatch for monitoring.
