Once you’ve integrated with AWS CloudWatch, you have access to metrics from AWS Data Lifecycle Manager, which automates the creation, retention, and deletion of EBS snapshots and EBS-backed AMIs.

All available AWS integrations

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

The following table shows the Data Lifecycle Manager metrics ingested by Lightstep.
