Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR) today introduced up-to-the minute API metrics for the number of times you push and pull images with Amazon CloudWatch Usage Metrics, giving you the operational visibility you need to manage ECR usage and identify anomalous activity. 

CloudWatch collects ECR API metrics such as BatchGetImage counts which equates to the number of images pulled. Each such API metric lets you see the rate at which you use ECR APIs to push and pull images. You can learn more by reading the CloudWatch Usage Metrics documentation

This enhancement is available wherever ECR and CloudWatch Metrics are available, including AWS China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and AWS China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. Refer to the AWS Region table for more details. To learn more about these new ECR monitoring capabilities, read the documentation
