Cloudwatch pricing

0

The docs for Cloudwatch pricing are clear about what will incur costs. However, where can I view statistics on volume of logs ingested by cloudwatch and other metrics? I would like to know when I have used up or am close to using up the free allocations.

CloudWatch has metrics for CloudWatch Logs:

Metrics -> Logs -> Account Metrics

and then you can see the amount of logs coming in by Bytes or Log Events.

If you want to be alerted for the free tier, then you can setup a CloudWatch Alarm and/or an AWS Budget (using the usage not the cost data).

You mentioned that the docs about pricing. Do you mean the CW pricing page? Or the documentation for CloudWatch?

Have you seen this docs page? https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudWatch/latest/monitoring/cloudwatch_billing.html

It's the most comprehensive guide around monitoring, visualizing and optimizing CloudWatch cost and usage, so I suggest to take a look.
