Amazon Keyspaces (for Apache Cassandra), a scalable, highly available, and fully managed Apache Cassandra–compatible database service, now helps you monitor and improve application read/write performance and throughput by using new Amazon CloudWatch metrics.

Keyspaces integrates with CloudWatch to give you deep observability into your Cassandra workload performance. Now, Keyspaces publishes new CloudWatch metrics to help you optimize your application data models for better read/write performance by detecting unbalanced workload traffic across your partitions. In addition, the new metrics help you detect when you need to increase the number of client connections to support greater read/write throughput.

See Amazon CloudWatch pricing for information about the pricing of CloudWatch metrics. Support for Keyspaces metrics in CloudWatch is available in the Amazon China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the Amazon China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.
