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.


Getting started

This project provides a set of Terraform modules to enable metrics, logs and traces collection, dashboards and alerts for monitoring:

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.
