Amazon Web Services monitoring

For intelligent monitoring of services running in Amazon cloud, you can integrate Dynatrace with Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS integration helps you stay on top of the dynamics of your data center in the cloud.

Prerequisites

Set up and configure Dynatrace SaaS integration or Dynatrace Managed integration on Amazon Web Services.

See Set up Dynatrace on Amazon Web Services for further options and details.
