AWS Direct Connect links your internal network to an AWS Direct Connect location over a standard Ethernet fiber-optic cable.
If you haven’t already, first set up the AWS CloudWatch integration. No additional steps are needed for installation.
On the AWS CloudWatch integration page, ensure that the Direct Connect service is selected for metric collection.
