Once you’ve integrated with AWS CloudWatch, you have access to metrics for the AWS SQS service.
You can create a pre-built dashboard for this integration when you add the integration to Lightstep or from the Dashboard list view.
To verify metrics are reporting, search for the metrics on the Metric details page in Project settings.
