Monitoring AWS WAF with New Relic Infrastructure

AWS Web Application Firewall (WAF) keeps your applications and APIs safe from bad actors who may want to affect your availability and performance by safeguarding your traffic from common attack vectors. You can deploy WAF on a number of AWS services for easy maintenance and configuration.

What you can monitor with our AWS WAF integration

Blocked requests

How many requests is WAF turning away?

Allowed requests

Keep an eye on what's making it through the firewall.

Counted requests

Track specific requests based on custom filters.

Know what’s happening with your AWS Web Application Firewall

AWS WAF is easy to deploy and maintain, but requires careful observation to keep your services safe without affecting performance or access. Since you only pay for what you use, it’s also important to monitor your requests and make sure your filters are working properly and updated from their sources.

See your AWS WAF metrics in pre-built dashboards

Visualize all your data, easily filter to a specific host, and correlate with other performance metrics.
