Overview

Amazon Virtual Private Network (VPN) lets you establish a secure and private tunnel from your network or device to the AWS global network.

Enable this integration to see all your VPN metrics in Datadog.

Setup

Installation

If you haven’t already, set up the Amazon Web Services integration first.

Metric collection

  1. In the AWS integration tile, ensure that VPN is checked under metric collection.

  2. Install the Datadog - Amazon VPN integration.

Log collection

Enable logging

Configure Amazon VPN to send logs either to a S3 bucket or to Cloudwatch.

Note: If you log to a S3 bucket, make sure that amazon_vpn is set as Target prefix.

Send logs to Datadog

  1. If you haven’t already, set up the Datadog log collection AWS Lambda function.
  2. Once the lambda function is installed, manually add a trigger on the S3 bucket or Cloudwatch log group that contains your Amazon VPN logs in the AWS console:
