AWS Cloudwatch Terraform module

Terraform module which creates Cloudwatch resources on AWS.

This type of resources are supported:

Terraform versions

Only Terraform 0.12 is supported.

Usage

Log metric filter

module "log_metric_filter" {
  source  = "terraform-aws-modules/cloudwatch/aws//modules/log-metric-filter"
  version = "~> 1.0"

  log_group_name = "my-application-logs"

  name    = "error-metric"
  pattern = "ERROR"

  metric_transformation_namespace = "MyApplication"
  metric_transformation_name      = "ErrorCount"
}

Read Filter and Pattern Syntax for explanation of pattern.

Metric alarm

module "metric_alarm" {
  source  = "terraform-aws-modules/cloudwatch/aws//modules/metric-alarm"
  version = "~> 1.0"

  alarm_name          = "my-application-logs-errors"
  alarm_description   = "Bad errors in my-application-logs"
  comparison_operator = "GreaterThanOrEqualToThreshold"
  evaluation_periods  = 1
  threshold           = 10
  period              = 60
  unit                = "Count"

  namespace   = "MyApplication"
  metric_name = "ErrorCount"
  statistic   = "Maximum"

  alarm_actions = ["arn:aws:sns:eu-west-1:835367859852:my-sns-queue"]
}

Metric alarms by multiple dimensions

This submodule is useful when you need to create very similar alarms where only dimensions are different (eg, multiple AWS Lambda functions), but the rest of arguments are the same.

module "metric_alarms" {
  source  = "terraform-aws-modules/cloudwatch/aws//modules/metric-alarms-by-multiple-dimensions"
  version = "~> 1.0"

  alarm_name          = "lambda-duration-"
  alarm_description   = "Lambda duration is too high"
  comparison_operator = "GreaterThanOrEqualToThreshold"
  evaluation_periods  = 1
  threshold           = 10
  period              = 60
  unit                = "Milliseconds"

  namespace   = "AWS/Lambda"
  metric_name = "Duration"
  statistic   = "Maximum"

  dimensions = {
    "lambda1" = {
      FunctionName = "index"
    },
    "lambda2" = {
      FunctionName = "signup"
    },
  }

  alarm_actions = ["arn:aws:sns:eu-west-1:835367859852:my-sns-queue"]
}

CIS AWS Foundations Controls: Metrics + Alarms

module "cis_alarms" {
  source  = "terraform-aws-modules/cloudwatch/aws//modules/cis-alarms"
  version = "~> 1.0"

  log_group_name = "my-cloudtrail-logs"
  alarm_actions  = ["arn:aws:sns:eu-west-1:835367859852:my-sns-queue"]
}

AWS CloudTrail normally publishes logs into AWS CloudWatch Logs. This module creates log metric filters together with metric alarms according to CIS AWS Foundations Benchmark v1.2.0. Read more about CIS AWS Foundations Controls.
