You may send PUT and GET requests continuously when using OBS, which generates upload and download traffic. You may also receive error responses from the server. Huawei Cloud provides Cloud Eye to help you monitor OBS and better understand your bucket statuses. Cloud Eye can perform automatic and real-time monitoring over your buckets. It triggers alarms and notifications upon user operations based on predefined policies, allowing you to keep a close eye on your bucket access requests, traffic, and error responses.

You do not need to separately subscribe to Cloud Eye. It starts automatically once you create a resource (a bucket, for example) in OBS.

For more information about Cloud Eye, see What Is Cloud Eye?
