I have used the following:

  • CloudWatch Logs/Metrics/Alerts: it's ok but dashboards are not super pretty, querying logs is not super easy and not fast.
  • ELK + elastalert: pretty cool dashboards, easy to query data. Cons: easy to overload you ElasticSearch instance with data, type conflicts, logstash problems
  • CloudWatch Logs + Lambda + ElasticSearch + Kibana: you don't have logstash but the rest remains
  • New Relic, quite neat, powerful query language, nice dashboards, lots of plugins. Cons: probably expensive
