AWS Integration

Mackerel is a server monitoring service that also supports AWS cloud products. Only a simple set-up is needed to obtain and visualize various metrics and events from AWS products such as ELB, RDS, and ElastiCache. Even if your use of AWS crosses over multiple accounts and regions, management of the entire service will be easy when using Mackerel.

Only offered with the Trial and Standard plan

Seamless integration with CloudWatch API

Using the CloudWatch (an AWS monitoring service) API, various AWS cloud products can be monitored with Mackerel. The only required configurations for Mackerel are registering the read-only access key and making a simple selection. Merely doing this allows Mackerel to access the CloudWatch API to automatically visualize and monitor various information.

Manage AWS cloud products as hosts

By configuring AWS Integration in Mackerel, each AWS cloud product will be registered as a single host and detailed instances, event information, and such will be visualized. Since the host will be included in the concept of service/role/host, which are features of Mackerel, management of the entire service will be easy to understand, even if complex configurations are set in server-less architecture.

Getting indications withlong term capacity management

Mackerel's retention period for metrics as well as the graph display period is 400 days (maximum 2 years) with the Standard plan. For this reason, capacity management is easy based on the long-term trend analysis. By taking advantage of Mackerel, you can get an idea of how to prevent issues before they occur and learn ways to cut costs.
