Top 5 Monitoring Software Packages for the Enterprise

Amazon CloudWatch

Amazon AWS is one of the best cloud services on the market today but their CloudWatch product could use some improvements.

Pros: The best part about CloudWatch is that it directly integrates with your AWS instances. Logs are generated from both your instances as well as your Server.

Cons: There is a lot of room for improvement for CloudWatch. For starters, the user interface is not very inviting or friendly to a system administrator. The Dashboard widgets do not look like the belong. Installation is not straight forward and documentation is vague.
