Amazon Data Lifecycle Manager now supports CloudWatch metrics

Today we are announcing the availability of Amazon CloudWatch metrics for Amazon Data Lifecycle Manager (Amazon DLM), which you can use to gain insight into the operations of your lifecycle policy. You can use these metrics to see exactly how many Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) Snapshots and EBS-backed Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) are create, copied, shared and deleted each time a lifecycle policy is run. You can also create alarms to be triggered when resources are not created, copied or deleted by the policy, allowing you to take immediate action to diagnose and fix potential policy issues.
