AWS OpsWorks Stacks now supports integration with Amazon CloudWatch Logs. With CloudWatch Logs, you can monitor your logs, in near real-time, for specific phrases, values or metrics. Previously, you had to manually install and configure the CloudWatch Logs agents directly on your Amazon EC2 instances. Now, you can leverage the built-in integration with CloudWatch Logs to simplify multi-instance log monitoring. For example, you can now monitor your Rails logs for exceptions across your instances. After you enable CloudWatch Logs in OpsWorks Stacks, the logs will be automatically sent to CloudWatch Logs where you can set up filters to extract metrics, and generate alarms based on those metrics.
