Once you’ve integrated with AWS Cloudwatch, you have access to metrics from AWS EC2, a cloud-computing platform that enables running and scaling applications virtually.

See this table for 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 EC2 metrics ingested by Lightstep.
