Key Features

Log monitoring

Perform comprehensive monitoring using tools like log tail, log surround, log patterns, and log-based metrics.

Service topology

Visualize system components with service-level rate, errors, and duration (RED) metrics analysis.

Application analytics

Analyze application-specific data, including application-level availability tracking.

Rich language support

Perform rich data analysis with observability-specific query support using PPL.

OpenTelemetry support

Correlate metrics, traces, and logs through OpenTelemetry-based schemas and semantic conventions.


Create out-of-the-box analysis and dashboards for common log types like AWS CloudTrail, Nginx, and popular databases.

Ingestion pipelines

Manage observability data collections cost efficiently and at scale with built-in transformations, routing, sampling, and anomaly detection provided by Data Prepper ingestion tools.

Anomaly detection

Detect anomalies and analyze streaming data with rich transformation and aggregation.

Use Cases

Performance monitoring Use trace analytics to detect issues with service latency and trigger alerts when conditions are met.
Troubleshooting Troubleshoot services and perform root cause analysis by correlating key metrics with trace and log data.
Advanced log analysis Use auto-generated log patterns to detect outlier events in log data.
Monitor application health Monitor the service-level objectives of your applications using built-in application analytics.
Anomaly detection Automatically detect anomalous behavior in incoming data in near real time.
Capacity planning Obtain actionable insights related to system capacity, performance, and stability.
