Using Metrics

To get a deep dive on CloudWatch Metrics and get a complete hands-on experience on this topic, head to the Metrics module

Go to CloudWatch Metrics and you should see a custom AWS Namespace called ECS/ContainerInsights. All metrics collected collected by CloudWatch Container Insights from all ECS clusters in that region are grouped here.

Inside there, you should be 3 different dimensions under which metrics are collected as shown below.

If you have a cluster that uses EC2 launch type you can also enable the CloudWatch Agent to collect metrics at instance level

ECS Metrics

You can select a particular metric and do metric operations such as creating Dashboards, creating Alarms, creating an Anomaly Detection model etc from this console.
