Enable Amazon CloudWatch

Amazon CloudWatch is a web service that enables you to monitor your Amazon EC2 instances, in real-time. Metrics such as CPU utilization, latency, and request counts are provided automatically for these AWS resources. You can also supply your own custom application and system metrics, such as memory usage, transaction volumes, or error rates, and Amazon CloudWatch will monitor these metrics too at a nominal charge. With Amazon CloudWatch, you can access up-to-the-minute statistics, view graphs, and set alarms for your metric data. Amazon CloudWatch functionality is accessible via API, command-line tools, the AWS SDK, and the AWS Management Console. Therefore, while configuring the tests for the AWS EC2 Component types, set the CLOUDWATCH ENABLED flag to true. By default, this flag is set to true.
