Once you’ve integrated with AWS CloudWatch, you have access to all metrics for EKS, which is a managed Kubernetes service.

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 EKS metrics ingested by Lightstep.

Metric Name Unit Description
