Monitoring provides 360-degree visibility of applications, servers, virtualization, containers, synthetics, storage, and network devices. A monitoring template defines all parameters used to monitor target resource.

Data collection policy

After the integration is configured, the most recent one hour of data is collected. This is followed by periodic data collection. If a cloud provider service or network outage occurs, data collection continues to be attempted from the time of the last successful collection. When the outage is resolved, up to four hours of the metric data before restored connectivity is collected. If the outage is greater than four hours, the most recent four hours of data, only, is collected.

Create and assign templates

AWS services can be managed more efficiently using templates. Apply the templates manually to initiate the monitoring of your AWS services. See Assign Templates to assign templates to the services in a group. See a recommended template list for predefined templates. If you do not want to use any recommended templates, [create a template]((/solutions/monitoring/template/create-template/).

Assign device management policies

Using device management policies, you can assign templates, availability rule, knowledge base articles and custom attributes. To assign a device management policy, create one. See Managing Device Management Policies to create and assign a device management policy on your AWS services.

Set Alerts

Alerts are pre-configured messages that are triggered when there is a change outside a predefined monitoring range of a service or a device. For details, see Alerting.
