AWS Metadata Tags

You can filter metrics for AWS resources using the namespaces and resource types listed here.

If you configure the CloudWatch source for metrics, Sumo will apply the tags you have assigned to resources in selected AWS services that report metrics to CloudWatch, so that you can use those tags when querying those metrics after ingestion to Sumo. Tags will also be attached to host metrics collected by host metrics sources on your EC2 instances.

In the table below, the "AWS Service" column lists the Amazon services this beta feature currently supports. The "Namespace" column  contains the AWS Namespace you can use in queries for each service.
