CloudWatch collects monitoring and operational data in the form of logs, metrics, and events, providing you with a unified view of AWS resources, applications, and services that run on AWS and on-premises servers.


When computing resources reaches max capacity, we need to scale to continue delivering the services. An alarm is set up to trigger this function when it reaches a specified threshold. For example, when the instances of an ecs cluster reaches an average of 75% of CPU usage the service will scale by adding additional resources.


If seq is disabled all logs will be available in Cloudwatch Logs
