Collect and display real-time event data in AWS with DuploCloud
Amazon EventBridge collects and visualizes real-time logs, metrics, and event data in automated dashboards to streamline your cloud infrastructure and application maintenance.
By default, the metrics for a resource are available on the Metrics page in DuploCloud. Some metrics, however, need agents to be installed in the system to collect the information, such as AWS SSM Agent.
DuploCloud provides a way to automatically install these agents on all the hosts whenever they are provisioned. For more information, refer to the DuploCloud Security White Paper PCI and HIPAA Compliance with DuploCloud, and read the General section, Agent Models, to learn about installing agents for compliance controls and security frameworks.

Adding and Viewing Targets for EventBridge

An EventBridge target is a resource or endpoint to which EventBridge sends an event when the event matches the event pattern defined for a rule. The rule processes event data and sends pertinent information to the target. To deliver event data to a target, EventBridge needs permission to access the target resource. You can define up to five targets for each rule.
You define targets and associated types in DuploCloud. DuploCloud supports types ECS Task and Lambda.
