Site24x7 vs. AWS CloudWatch

Looking for a CloudWatch alternative?

If you're tired of paying CloudWatch for additional alarms, dashboards, or custom metrics and looking for an alternative, you're in the right place. Check out our detailed comparison between Site24x7's AWS Monitoring and Amazon CloudWatch.

Overview of AWS monitoring

AWS monitoring is the process of tracking and optimizing the performance of your AWS infrastructure. It enables you to gain complete end-to-end visibility of your resources, detect anomalies, perform root cause analysis using logs, ensure high uptime, maintain cloud security, and meet internal and external compliance standards.

An AWS monitoring tool is essential for tracking and optimizing resource settings in the Amazon cloud. With these tools, you can coordinate, view, and monitor different AWS services from a single interface. Unlike traditional monitoring tools, these tools are specifically designed to monitor distributed environments, ensuring enhanced security and high availability of resources. With an AWS monitoring tool, you can optimize resource allocation and ensure that your AWS environment is operating at peak performance.

To ensure effective AWS monitoring, there are several best practices that you should consider. These include:

  • Conduct drilled-down monitoring of individual resources to identify potential issues and optimize their usage.
  • Optimize your AWS resource usage by identifying underutilized resources, consolidating redundant resources, and right sizing your resources.
  • Monitor your resources with on-demand scaling to respond to changes in demand quickly and maintain optimal performance.
  • Use automations to remediate issues automatically and proactively prevent potential problems.
  • Configure alerts for threshold breaches, such as resource utilization exceeding a certain threshold or instances being down, to take appropriate action promptly.

Check out this page for over 150 resource-level AWS best practices provided by Site24x7 AWS monitoring.

Monitoring the performance of your AWS infrastructure is essential to ensure optimal performance and avoid downtime. Here are some steps you can follow to monitor your AWS performance effectively:

  • Choose a reliable SaaS-based monitoring tool, such as Site24x7, that provides built-in best practices and advanced features to monitor your AWS environment effectively.
  • Use AI-powered anomaly dashboards to identify performance issues quickly and potential bottlenecks in your AWS infrastructure.
  • Implement auto-remediation pipelines to automate the resolution of identified issues and reduce the risk of downtime.
  • Leverage out-of-the-box features to monitor the performance of individual resources in a single dashboard, which can offer better performance monitoring compared to Amazon CloudWatch..

When selecting an AWS monitoring tool, it's important to have a thorough understanding of your AWS infrastructure. Look for a tool that offers AI-powered alerting, an anomaly dashboard, and easy integration with third-party tools like Jira, PagerDuty, Zapier, Slack, or Microsoft Teams. Ensure that the tool allows you to monitor the uptime of all your AWS resources, forecast AWS metrics based on historical observations, and customize infrastructure and inventory dashboards. By considering these factors, you can choose the AWS monitoring tool that best suits your needs.
