Monitoring Setup Assistant (deprecated)

Monitoring Setup Assistant is deprecated and replaced by Monitoring Assistant available for:

  • marbot for Slack after 2022-12-15.
  • marbot for Microsoft Teams after 2023-01-17.

Setting up monitoring on AWS is hard. AWS provides countless features and sources of events. Overlooking the important settings is easy. The Monitoring Setup Assistant helps you to monitor all the relevant sources of your AWS infrastructure via CloudWatch Alarms, EventBridge Rules, or more service-specific features such as RDS Event Notifications.

Ask marbot to help you with your monitoring setup like this:

@marbot set up AWS monitoring for me

marbot responds with a wizard to configure AWS monitoring using CloudFormation or Terraform.
