Once you’ve integrated with AWS CloudWatch, you have access to all metrics for AWS Amazon MQ, which integrates, allowing you to view and examine metrics for your ActiveMQ or RabbitMQ broker and the broker’s destinations using CloudWatch.

All available AWS integrations

To verify metrics are reporting, search for the metrics in the Metric details section of the Project Settings page.

The following table shows the Amazon MQ metrics ingested by Lightstep.
