Metrics in CloudWatch do not have ARNs, they're not exactly resources - more equivalent to a row in a database table.

CloudWatch metrics are data about the performance of your systems and hence they don't have ARNs. You can metrics explorer to get details of EC2 etc based on id.

  • Since each namespace has various dimensions it is being filtered on, how can we say that one metric is for a particular resource?

    For example, how can we point to the particular RDS database from the "By Database Class" Dimension?
