In this post we’re going to investigate how to create custom metrics for the AWS CloudWatch service. In some cases it’s not enough to have default set of AWS metrics which are already defined for you in dashboard. Let’s say you want to monitor the number of active customers on your website, or you would like to know the number of failed requests to your API backend.
Whatever it is, CloudWatch will allow you to record any time-based data using AWS APIs.
