This video covers how to create and configure VPC flow logs for a VPC.
- [Voiceover] With an understanding…of what VPC Flow Logs are,…let's open up an AWS web console to explore…how to configure the Flow Logs.…We will also examine some of the Flow Log data.…Note that in the upper-right hand corner of the screen,…I have switched to the Ireland region.…In this region, I have created a VPC…called research.ireland.…The first thing I need to do is make sure…I have a CloudWatch Log Group,…where the Flow Logs can be published.…To create one, from the main web console,…I scroll down a bit and click on the CloudWatch link…in the middle, under management tools.…
From the CloudWatch page, I click on the Logs link…in the left-hand navigation.…To create a new log, I click the Create log group button…in the center of the screen.…This pops up a modal window, asking me to specify a name…for the log group.…I am going to name it the same as the VPC…for which I want to capture traffic.…To finish the creation process,…I click the blue Create log group button.…Okay, now I've created the log group.…Now I need to get to the VPC dashboard…
