The Amazon CloudWatch application performance management (APM) system can be configured as an external data source for performance intelligence within CloudTest.
External data charts from the external data service are presented in real-time, like any other charts, and can be viewed from a point in time, such as the time frame of a result, or a specific relative or absolute time range.Additionally, External Data appears as a new entry in the Check Server tree alongside other CloudTest services. Check Server(s) is viewed from within the Central > Servers and Server Instances lists using the lower panel Check Server(s) tab. When check server is run, the External Data Source is checked along with all the others.
