Amazon App Mesh Metric Extension is now generally available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. With the Metric Extension, App Mesh customers can now opt in for a limited number of aggregated metrics from their virtual services. App Mesh Metric Extension is available to all customers running workloads on Amazon EC2, Amazon ECS, Amazon EKS, and self-managed Kubernetes. Amazon App Mesh is a service mesh that provides application-level networking to make it easy for your services to communicate with each other across multiple types of compute infrastructure.

App Mesh Metric Extension improves end-to-end experience for customers. Aggregated metrics can be automatically sent to integrated endpoints, such as Amazon CloudWatch or Datadog, based on customers’ selections. This reduces the total the number of metrics sent to CloudWatch and its usage cost. In addition, Metrics Extension makes it simpler and easier for those customers who query metrics in Amazon Web Services Console directly.
