Once you’ve integrated with AWS CloudWatch, you have access to metrics from AWS Client VPN, which is a managed client-based VPN service that gives you secure access to your on-premises network and AWS resources. With Client VPN, you can use an OpenVPN-based VPN client to access your resources from any location.

All available AWS integrations

You can validate that metrics are reporting to Lightstep on the Metrics details page in Project settings.
