Amazon CloudWatch Agent adds support for Configurable Log Group Retention

Amazon CloudWatch agent now allows you to specify how long CloudWatch will retain log events. You can install and configure CloudWatch agent to collect system and application logs from Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), on-premises hosts, and containerized applications and send them to CloudWatch. This new configuration option is intended for users who want to apply uniform log group retention periods when deploying the agent.
