Cloud Trace Service

Cloud Trace Service (CTS) records operations on cloud resources in your account. You can use the records to perform security analyses, track resource changes, audit compliance, and locate faults. You can view the last 7 days of records via console and transfer them to Object Storage Service (OBS) for long-term storage.

  • *Upgrade: CTS supports encrypted storage and notifications for key operations.
Product Advantages
  • Full Recording

    CTS records operations on cloud resources in real time. It covers most HUAWEI CLOUD services and all operations performed by calling APIs, recording complete information.

  • Access Security

    System administrators allocate trace view and access permissions. In this way, traces are managed in a centralized and strict way, minimizing unauthorized operations.

  • Data Security

    Traces are stored and transmitted using SSL encryption, and no function or interface for modifying or deleting traces is available. All these ensure data accuracy.

  • Efficient Governance

    Traces enable highly available and low-cost IT governance based on centralized management, automatic collection, and secure governance.

Application Scenarios
  • Compliance Auditing

  • Resource Tracking

  • Fault Locating

  • Security Analysis
