AWS Inspector metrics

Once you’ve integrated with AWS CloudWatch, you have access to metrics from AWS Inspector, which is is a vulnerability management service that periodically checks the security of your AWS workloads. Amazon Inspector automatically locates and checks for software flaws and accidental network exposure on Amazon EC2 instances and container images stored in Amazon Elastic Container Registry (Amazon ECR).

See all AWS integrations.

To verify metrics are reporting, search for the metrics on the Metric details page in Settings.

The following table shows the Inspector metrics ingested by Cloud Observability.
