Amazon CloudWatch RUM now supports customer defined metrics for troubleshooting and monitoring
Amazon CloudWatch Real User Monitoring (RUM) adds the ability for customers to define custom metrics that will be sent to CloudWatch Metrics. Customers can define metrics based on data in customer-defined events (Custom Events), pre-defined RUM events and customer- defined metadata attributes (Custom Attributes). The customer-defined metrics gives customers flexibility to monitor specific parts of their application, troubleshoot end user impacting issues unique to their application, and get alerted for anomalies. For example, a customer could define a metric on the number of dropped calls in a video application sending customer defined events that capture details like call duration, wi-fi or cellular network, network bandwidth etc of a dropped call.
