Summary Dashboard

From the Summary dashboard you can easily navigate to all other AWS dashboards.



The Amazon Web Services integration dashboards contains pre-defined alert conditions embedded as queries in charts contained in the dashboards. For example:


To create the alert, click the Create Alert link under the query and configure the alert properties (notification targets, condition checking frequency, etc.).

Metrics Configuration

Wavefront ingests Amazon Web Services metrics using the CloudWatch, CloudTrail, and AWS service APIs. For details on the metrics and how to configure ingestion, see AWS Metrics Integration.

Metrics Information

You can see the information about the metrics and dimensions which are published to CloudWatch via different AWS services on the AWS CloudWatch metrics doc site. Click a link below to see the detailed metrics information per service:

Add an Amazon Cloud Integration

Setting up an Amazon cloud integration requires establishing a trust relationship between Amazon and Tanzu Observability by Wavefront.

You start by granting Tanzu Observability read-only access to your Amazon account or by giving limited access.

Then, you register the integration by providing the necessary information. See AWS Integration Overview for information about setting up and managing the AWS Cloud integration.


  • EC2 Instance CPU Usage Too High:Alert reports when the EC2 instance CPU utilization constantly exceeds the defined limit.
  • EC2 Instance Status Check Failed:Alert reports when the EC2 status check constantly fails.
