Hey everyone, Does anyone know a tool that can monitor the health and stability of Cloud resources? For example, if I’m working on
AWS
, I would like it to read my
CloudTrail
stream, get all the
RDS
data and alert me if my
RDS
instance > 80% (same with
DynamoDB
,
MongoDB
, and other cloud providers as well) I know that
Datadog
and
Coralogix
has
Cloudtrail
integrations, but I’ve never heard anyone who uses them.

Cloudtrail is an audit log for control plane events (user X did action Y to resource Z). You want operational metrics for your services which is provided by Cloudwatch (AWS naming has always been terrible). Most monitoring services have cloudwatch (or whatever that cloud providers version is called) y default.

thanks for the replies @Andrew Kirkpatrick RDS and AWS were just examples. In my case I use both AWS and GCP and I was wondering if there is a tool in which I could monitor all my different resources. @Nathan Hruby you are right, I meant the metrics from Cloudwatch

Hi @Alex Levin, check this one: https://coralogix.com/docs/aws-cloudtrail/

Ah cool. Would still likely recommend looking into Prometheus/Grafana if you want something open-source, plus there's https://grafana.com/products/cloud/ if you need to migrate to something more hands-off. Are you specifically looking for Cloudtrail audit logging for security reasons, or just general multi-cloud monitoring? (wasn't sure if cost was a factor in avoiding providers like Datadog)

@Assaf Shutan thanks I saw that both
Datadog
and
Coralogix
have these integrations, but I never heard of anyone that uses them. Is it any good? Can you actually monitor the health of cloud resources using it?

I am “slightly” biased here as I work for Coralogix, however, yeah 100%, monitoring the health of cloud resources is where we shine. Compared to DD, you should expect a 30%-70% cost reduction, unlimited retention (based on AWS S3), 24\7 real engineers support, open-source-friendly platform (For example: Query language is Lucene\PromQL\SQL, Visualisations are in OpenSearch\Grafana and so on) and many other advantages.
