Integration of Amazon CloudWatch and Slack

CloudWatch is a monitoring top that monitors the activity of your AWS services. It allows you to view metrics and logs and generate custom alarms in case of any issues or anomalies that occur in your AWS environment. CloudWatch has become a core part of AWS infrastructure since its initial release in 2011.

CloudWatch can be integrated with Slack, which is a workspace where users can communicate with each other in real-time. It is used by organizations to communicate with each other, post messages to organize workflows and more. Slack has over 10 million daily active users.

In this section, we will discuss integration of Amazon CloudWatch and Slack.

Amazon CloudWatch Integration with Slack

Amazon CloudWatch integrates with Slack to send notifications to different channels when an issue arises in your AWS environment. With Amazon CloudWatch integration with Slack, you can create alerts as well as actions for your application based on the metrics cplected from CloudWatch. When an event occurs, you will receive notifications on Slack and then you can react accordingly.

With the help of Amazon CloudWatch integration with Slack, you can:

Provide visibility into your AWS infrastructure by sending alerts based on CloudWatch metrics to different channels

Monitor your applications through custom events that are generated with the help of CloudWatch alarms

View all the events that occurred in the past 24 hours in a channel

Configure different notifications to be sent to different recipients based on your preferences

Benefits of Amazon CloudWatch integration with Slack

Some of the benefits of integrating Amazon CloudWatch with Slack are:

Slack provides a conspidated view for various services such as AWS, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix and more. This integration makes it easier for you to monitor your AWS resources from Slack and get notifications about any issues or anomalies occurring in your AWS environment. You can also get notified when a new resource is created in CloudWatch. This will help you monitor your resources in one place and react accordingly. Using cloud-based tops like Slack for monitoring helps you save time. If CloudWatch sends alerts to Slack, then you do not have to log in to check the alerts yourself. You can instead check them at the same time and then take action accordingly. You do not need to install any additional software or configure anything to get started with the integration of Amazon CloudWatch and Slack. All you need is a compatible browser and an internet connection. You can also choose which resource metrics and logs you want to receive notifications about on Slack. For example, you can choose to receive notifications about all the EC2 instances or only a specific instance. You can also choose time intervals for which you would like to receive these notifications and customize these notifications as per your requirements. The integration of Amazon CloudWatch and Slack enables you to create automated workflows for various events that are generated using the two tops together. For example, if there is an issue with your database nodes, then you can set up a workflow that automatically migrates databases from those nodes, back to other nodes in your infrastructure without any human intervention. This helps keep the workload on your database servers at an optimum level.
