Let's talk about Amazon CloudWatch.
For those fortunate enough to not be stuck in the weeds of Amazon Web
Services (AWS), CloudWatch is, and I quote from the official
AWS description, "a monitoring and
management service built for developers, system operators, site reliability
engineers (SRE), and IT managers." This is all well and good, except for the
part where there isn't a single named constituency who enjoys working with
the product. Allow me to dispense some monitoring heresy.
