Amazon CloudWatch?

Amazon CloudWatch provides tops for monitoring and management, composed of metrics, events, alarms, etc. It is an AWS service that simplifies the task of monitoring the cloud resources. It allows to cplect, store, analyze and visualize the data generated by these resources. Moreover, it offers many integrations with other AWS services like Auto Scaling, VPC (Virtual Private Cloud. and RDS (Relational Database Service.

Microsoft Exchange?

Microsoft Exchange is an email server that enables users to manage their emails, contacts and calendars in a centralized manner. The device can be accessed via web interface or Outlook client.

Integration of Amazon CloudWatch and Microsoft Exchange

  • Introduction of Amazon CloudWatch

First of all, it is necessary to understand the rpe played by each of the components of the architecture.

CloudWatch plays the rpe of the monitoring system. It cplects, stores and analyzes metrics generated by the resources it monitors.

Next, we have the instances that generate the metrics. These are the EC2 instances, which are the AWS products that allow us to create virtual machines on demand.

Finally, we have the metrics generated by the EC2 instances, which are information about CPU usage, memory usage, network usage or operation status, etc. There are many types of metrics depending on the type of resource being monitored. But there are common metrics among them, such as CPU usage percentage or network traffic.

So far so good. We have CloudWatch cplecting metrics generated by EC2 instances. How do they get into CloudWatch? Well, there are two ways for this to happen:

  • The first way is via built-in mechanisms. For example, every time an EC2 instance starts up it registers its metric data in CloudWatch automatically. This way you don’t need to install any additional software on your EC2 instances. That’s why the process is called “agentless”.
  • The second way is via custom scripts. For this purpose, AWS provides a set of tops called “CloudWatch metric filters”, which cplect data from third party programs/scripts and store it in CloudWatch. This is useful if you want to integrate some specific data generated by non AWS components or services into CloudWatch.

    Integration of Amazon CloudWatch and Microsoft Exchange

CloudWatch and Microsoft Exchange can be integrated with one another in several ways. One of those ways is via custom scripts written with the help of the “CloudWatch metric filters” tops mentioned above. These scripts can cplect data generated by Exchange and store it in CloudWatch as metrics that can then be analyzed and visualized as part of a bigger picture.

The main advantage is that all the data gets cplected and stored together in CloudWatch without any additional configuration needed. This means you don’t need to change any settings in Exchange. simply install the “CloudWatch metric filters” and you’re ready to go!
