Monitoring: Amazon Data Lifecycle Manager (DLM)
Amazon Data Lifecycle Manager is a free and easy-to-use service that helps you to automate the creation, retention, and deletion of EBS snapshots and AMIs. You can use it to protect valuable data by setting up regular backups or creating standardized AMIs that can be refreshed regularly.
Monitoring DLM policies to get notified if creating or deleting EBS snapshots fails is crucial. For example, monitoring DLM avoids a broken backup system leading to data loss.
