Monitoring AWS CloudTrail with New Relic Infrastructure

AWS CloudTrail captures and records AWS account activity, including errors and login reporting, giving you improved oversight for your entire AWS implementation. It provides a rich set of tools to look over all of your connected AWS services and check on account history, console logins, and error reporting at a wide level, making it particularly useful if you utilize a lot of AWS services.

What you can monitor with our AWS CloudTrail integration

Requests per second

How much traffic is your web server handling? This metric shows you how many requests are being handled by NGINX.

Active connections

Each client will create a new TCP connection and send an HTTP(s) request. This metric measures the amount of TCP connections that are currently active.

Dropped connections

Keep an eye on this metric to see when NGINX is unable to handle incoming connections—this can happen when the server is overloaded.

Know what’s happening with your AWS CloudTrail activity

AWS CloudTrail is primarily used for logs and audits, which means staying on top of your reporting is crucial. Our CloudTrail integration gives you better visibility into your error logging and logins, while our other AWS integrations handle the more detailed work for each of your services.
