Amazon CloudWatch metrics increases throughput by 150x

Amazon CloudWatch custom metrics now supports a 50x higher capacity allowing you to send up to 1,000 metrics per call at a 3x faster default call rate and specify 3x more dimensions (up to 30) per metric. Customers rely on CloudWatch custom metrics to capture application-specific data that complements the automatic metrics provided by CloudWatch based on the AWS services you are using. With these improvements, customers can send the same volume of data with fewer API requests, leading to reduced costs.
