Monitoring Amazon VPC Flow Logs with New Relic Infrastructure

Amazon VPC Flow Logs can help you keep better track of IP traffic between network interfaces on your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud. It’s particularly useful for maintenance and auditing of your traffic and permissions. It can help monitor and identify traffic coming in and out of your VPC instances, and keep tabs on the users and groups that access them.

What you can monitor with our Amazon VPC Flow Logs integration

Know what’s happening with your Amazon VPC Flow Logs

Amazon VPC Flow Logs don’t have the same kind of performance metrics that we typically track. Instead, our dashboard and monitoring tools help keep track of your records over time, warning you about abnormalities and potential issues at arm’s length. It also lets you break down access records into source ports, bytes, and packet counts to help you troubleshoot issues.
