"What I found most valuable in Amazon CloudWatch is that it gives you detailed information, which I found helpful because it can even provide you with data for the past one minute, which is quite granular. That was what helped me most in terms of finding the root causes. Task automation is another valuable feature of Amazon CloudWatch."
"I have found the memory metrics and the CPU metrics valuable."
"The solution is easy to use."
"What my company likes best about Amazon CloudWatch is that it's on AWS. My team also likes it for its log feature. As the solution is on AWS, it also has good pricing and resource availability, plus it's what clients choose. My company also chose AWS for Forge ECS, and at the time, there was a need for the log features provided by Amazon CloudWatch, so it's the solution my team went with."
"The solution effectively monitors golden signals like CPU, page requests, and queues."
"Setting up this product was easy. I found data analytics as its most valuable feature."
"We have found the pricing to be reasonable."
"Our team finds it overall quite useful."
"The visibility and assistance with security vulnerabilities are valuable."
"It would be beneficial for CloudWatch to provide an API interface and some kind of custom configuration."
"I would like to monitor inbound and outbound transfer. I would also like to control the traffic for load balancing."
"I do not know whether or not CloudWatch can be integrated with on-prem services."
"We'd like the interface to be as easy as Datadog."
"The configuration capabilities could be better."
"The solution's integration could be easier for laypersons."
"For monitoring applications or for APM, CloudWatch has some limitations. You cannot monitor application performance from CloudWatch, and you have to go for a third-party tool."
"What would make Amazon CloudWatch better is if it includes more on-site checks, particularly status checks on the CPU, network input/output, etc. It would also be helpful if there's built-in swap space, disk, and memory monitoring in Amazon CloudWatch because, at the moment, my team has to configure it manually through a shell script."
"The visualization needs some improvement because there are occasional delays while the system queries information."
