Amazon Kinesis makes it easy to collect, process, and analyze real-time, streaming data so you can get timely insights and react quickly to new information. Honeycomb integrations use Amazon Kinesis to stream metrics and logs from Amazon CloudWatch to Honeycomb.
Amazon Kinesis can also be configured to publish metrics about its own operations. Using Honeycomb’s AWS integrations, you can send those metrics to Honeycomb.
