AWS Integration - WAF

Mackerel supports obtaining and monitoring AWS WAF metrics in AWS Integration. When integrating with AWS Integration, billable targets are determined using the conversion 1 Web Access Control List = 1 Micro Host. In addition to this, depending on the number of metrics retrieved, you may be charged for exceeding the maximum number of metrics per micro host.

Please refer to the following page for AWS Integration configuration methods and a list of supported AWS services.
