    Hello Rumman,

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    Remember that by default, CloudWatch doesn’t monitor memory usage but only the CPU utilization, Network utilization, Disk performance, and Disk Reads/Writes.

    This is the reason why you have to install a CloudWatch agent in your EC2 instances to collect and monitor the custom metric (memory usage).

    For more information about the metrics collected by the CloudWatch agent, you can click the link below.
