AWS Observability Accelerator for Terraform¶
Welcome to the AWS Observability Accelerator for Terraform!
The AWS Observability Accelerator for Terraform is a set of opinionated modules to help you set up observability for your AWS environments with AWS-managed observability services such as Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus, Amazon Managed Grafana, AWS Distro for OpenTelemetry (ADOT) and Amazon CloudWatch.
We provide curated metrics, logs, traces collection, alerting rules and Grafana dashboards for your AWS infrastructure and custom applications.
This project provides a set of Terraform modules to enable metrics, logs and traces collection, dashboards and alerts for monitoring:
EKS Monitoring with AWS-Managed Open Source - Get Prometheus metrics, CloudWatch logs collection, and X-Ray traces (with OTLP support) for your EKS cluster. Visualize key metrics and logs with provided Grafana dashboards and get pre-built alerting rules.
EKS Monitoring with Enhanced CloudWatch Container Insights - Get deep visibility into EKS using Amazon CloudWatch for metrics collection, aggregation, and insights summaries. Includes support for CloudWatch Application Signals (preview).
ECS Monitoring on EC2 with AWS-Managed Open Source - Collect metrics, traces, and logs for ECS on EC2 and send them to a Managed Prometheus workspace , X-Ray, and CloudWatch Logs. Includes pre-built Grafana dashboards for key metrics and logs.
Managed Prometheus Monitoring - This module sets up automated observability for Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus workspaces, including a Grafana dashboard, CloudWatch monitoring, and service quota alarms.
These modules can be directly configured in your existing Terraform configurations or ready to be deployed in our packaged examples
We have supporting examples for quick setup such as:
- Creating a new Amazon EKS cluster and a VPC
- Creating and configure an Amazon Managed Grafana workspace with SSO
To gain deep visibility into your workloads and environments, AWS proposes a set of secure, scalable, highly available, production-grade managed open source services such as Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus, Amazon Managed Grafana and Amazon OpenSearch.
AWS customers have asked for best-practices and guidance to collect metrics, logs and traces from their containerized applications and microservices with ease of deployment. Customers can use the AWS Observability Accelerator to configure their metrics and traces collection, leveraging AWS Distro for OpenTelemetry, to have opinionated dashboards and alerts available in only minutes.
