Amazon CloudWatch alerting is the optimal tool for watching cloud-based applications and accessing performance metrics across your entire AWS environment.

With links to relevant runbooks and graphs—as well as a robust rules engine—integrating VictorOps with Amazon CloudWatch helps teams solve problems faster and continuously improve in high-velocity deployment environments.
