Monitoring AWS Environment

Hi All,

I need some advice! We have a AWS CloudWatch collecting all the logs from different sources (WAF, application, EC2 etc.), and we need to pull those logs into Elastic for monitoring from both the application availability and performance perspective (We will be looking into APM as well) and I have come across this Monitor Amazon Web Services (AWS) | Observability Guide [8.3] | Elastic link, I am unclear why filebeat is required if we just want to pull logs from CloudWatch.

Has anyone implemented this successfully?

Appreciate your help.


Because u need some sort of agent to pull the logs from cloud watch. Elasticsearch can't do that.
