Grafana AWS Observability

Grafana AWS Observability for Grafana Cloud provides you with a single place to gain better visibility into the health and performance of your infrastructure and large scale applications. AWS Observability is available immediately with your Grafana Cloud account.

With AWS Observability, you can:

  • Monitor Amazon EC2 services
  • Send metrics: Connect and pull AWS CloudWatch metrics into Grafana Cloud without deploying or installing any local agents or configurations.
  • Send logs: Connect and send logs from multiple AWS services to Grafana Cloud by deploying a Lambda-compatible agent for logs (Lambda-Promtail) into your AWS infrastructure, including CloudWatch logs and ALB access logs.

Grafana Cloud gains access using AWS account delegation. Or you can configure AWS to send your data directly to Grafana Cloud.

Start work instead of managing a backend

AWS Observability provides you with access to a fast, scalable backend that you don’t have to manage. Instead of running your own exporter to pull cloud data to a local observability system, you can use Grafana’s cloud-native solution to keep your data in the cloud, with minimal setup overhead.

Configure simply and securely

Configure with no exchange of credentials required. AWS Observability follows AWS best practices for granting third parties access.

Access, query, alert on, and interact with centralized data

Access and manage your metrics and logs in Grafana Cloud, and work with your observability data in a centralized, consistent way. All data is stored in a single backend along with the rest of your observability data. You can write single queries that span all data, including infrastructure and application data.

With metrics, send your CloudWatch data from multiple AWS regions to Grafana Cloud. Metrics data is stored in Prometheus format. You can:

  • Query and alert on metrics data using the power of PromQL.
  • Ingest the tags from your AWS instance to make them available for querying and alerting. This allows you to identify what a particular resource is, without visiting your AWS Management Console.

You can explore your logs with LogQL, and easily perform cross-account and cross-region querying and alerting out of the box, managed by Grafana Mimir.
