Extend AWS monitoring

I am monitoring an AWS enviornment following these steps:

But I want to monitor other metrics that are stored in Cloudwatch. How is it possible to extend that built in monitoring? For example I’d like to get the state of the VPN tunnels and have them as an own service etc.

Is there any documentation how to implement this? I can’t find anything but tbh I also don’t really know what to look for.

Thanks all :slight_smile:

Hi @chervilarmor

welcome to the forum!

The AWS special agent is open source, so you can extend it and make use of that extended version. How to go about it? Take a look here: Writing your own check plug-ins

Best of luck,
