Level 300 | Use Case How To
Monitoring instance health often requires visibility into the utilization and performance metrics from within your VMs and parsing of log data for detailed context. With Amazon CloudWatch Agent, it enables you to collect, visualize, and store system metrics across multiple OS using single unified agent for both metrics and logs. In this tech talk, we will show you how CloudWatch Agent allows you to gain near real-time observability of your system health for both Amazon EC2 instances and on-premise servers. We will also dive into RackSpace's unique use case.

Learning Objectives:
• Leverage CloudWatch Agent to easily monitor VM health in a unified way
• Combine utilization, performance, and alarms to build operational dashboard
• Understand how RackSpace is leveraging CloudWatch Agent to manage AWS resources
