Launch of a new application monitoring capability in Amazon CloudWatch

Watch the Werner Vogels Keynote at re:Invent 2023 to view the launch announcement.

Built on best practices from operating thousands of applications at Amazon, Amazon CloudWatch Application Signals (Preview) is a new capability that makes it easy to automatically instrument and operate applications on AWS. You can track application performance against your most important business objectives without the undifferentiated heavy lifting of manual instrumentation, metrics computations, and correlating observed problem to root cause. CloudWatch Application Signals provides standardized metrics such as volume, latency, and errors for each of your applications with pre built dashboards. In as few as three clicks, you can spot anomalies, drill into the most important metrics, and identify the root cause of issues with correlated metrics logs and traces.

Using Application Signals, you can also create Service Level Objectives (SLOs) to focus on metrics with high business impact, helping you prioritize critical issues and continuously fine-tune your SLOs to better correlate with business KPIs. To speed up root cause identification, Application Signals provides a comprehensive view of application performance, integrating additional performance signals from CloudWatch Synthetics, which monitors critical APIs and user interactions, and CloudWatch RUM, which monitors real user performance.

CloudWatch Application Signals is available in Preview in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), Europe (Ireland), Asia Pacific (Sydney), and Asia Pacific (Tokyo) regions.
