cloudwatch-librato allows you to query your Amazon CloudWatch metrics and submit them to Librato Metrics. Librato Metrics has powerful metric correlation, metric drilldown, and custom dashboards features which let you view related metrics together in the same graph or on the same custom dashboard. If you have metrics in more than one AWS region it is easy to view them side by side within Librato Metrics.

#!/bin/bashecho `wget -q -O - `
See settings.example.json for more examples.
