  • Amazon CloudWatch is a monitoring and management service that provides data and insights to monitor applications, performance tracking, optimize resource utilization, and operational health. It collects monitoring and operational data in the form of logs, metrics and events from applications and services that run on AWS, and on-premises data centers. It also allows you to set high resolution alarms, visualize logs and metrics side by side, take automated actions, troubleshoot issues, and discover insights to optimize your applications to ensure they are running smoothly.
  • AWS CloudTrail is a service that enables governance, compliance, operational auditing, and risk auditing of your AWS account. It helps you to log, continuously monitor, and retain account activity related to actions across your AWS infrastructure. CloudTrail provides event history of your AWS account activity, including actions taken through the AWS Management Console, AWS SDKs, command line tools, and other AWS services. This event history simplifies security analysis, resource change tracking, and troubleshooting.

  • Application Insights is an extensible Application Performance Management (APM) service on Azure.  It includes powerful analytics tools to help you diagnose issues and to understand what users actually do with your app. It can be used to store analyze performance counters, diagnostics trace, exceptions, application logs, events, metrices and much more. It also provides multiple options to analyses and notify these useful information through smart detection, manual alerts, profiler, metrices explorer, dashboards, azure analytics, PowerBI etc,
  • Log Analytics plays a central role in Azure management by collecting telemetry and other data from a variety of sources and providing a query language and analytics engine that gives you insights into the operation of your applications and resources. You can either interact directly with Log Analytics data through log searches and views, or you may use analysis tools in other Azure services that store their data in Log Analytics such as Application Insights or Azure Security Center.
