Integration of Amazon CloudWatch and Tableau

CloudWatch is the monitoring service from Amazon Web Services (AWS. which provides a variety of metrics to observe the general health and performance of applications. Tableau is a data visualization tool which makes it easy to create interactive charts and graphs. The two products can be integrated to provide users with valuable insight into an application's environment. In this paper, we will explore how CloudWatch and Tableau can integrate with each other, as well as the benefits of doing so.

CloudWatch allows an organization to monitor the status of systems, services, applications, and infrastructure on AWS. Using CloudWatch, you can obtain metrics related to CPU, memory, storage, network, and web servers. These metrics are collected over a period of time, and then stored in a database for analysis. There are two methods for collecting data from CloudWatch. GetMetricStatistics API requests and Alarms.

GetMetricStatistics API requests are used for retrieving metrics recorded by CloudWatch Logs. These requests can be used to retrieve multiple metrics or a single metric at a time. You can specify beginning and ending times for the request, along with dimensions like namespace, tag keys, and tag values. The responses from these requests are XML documents that contain one or more metric results. Further processing of the response data can be done using the AWS SDK for Java.

Alarms are configured to trigger when specified conditions are met. An alarm consists of a name, a target value, and an action. An action could be email notifications sent to specific addresses or autoscaling actions that scale up or down an EC2 instance. Alarms also have different time ranges such as 15 minutes, 1 hour, 8 hours, 1 day, and 7 days. You can set alarms based on the following criteria:

You can configure alarms using the AWS Management Console or AWS CLI. CloudWatch detects changes in the state of your application over time and sends notifications to an SNS topic, which you can subscribe to using an SQS queue or an email address.

Tableau is a tool which helps you visualize data. It allows users to build dashboards with interactive visualizations in order to make sense of data. It supports various data formats, such as text files, spreadsheets, and databases. Tableau allows users to analyze data using dashboards and visualizations like graphs and charts. It also has additional features which allow users to filter the data displayed, modify parameters, add comments, change axis labels, freeze panes, format numbers, etc., in order to identify patterns in the data.

The integration of CloudWatch and Tableau provides organizations with a wealth of information about their applications and environments. Using these services together helps organizations monitor performance and gain deep understanding of their applications' usage patterns. We hope this paper has helped you understand how you can use the two products together.
