What is the correct stanza configuration to set up the input for amazon cloudwatch?

Builder

Hi,

I'm using this stanza for setting up amazon cloudwatch.
I can't see errors in the configuration, but I'm not getting any data from amazon. Can anybody tell me if I'm using the correct configuration of metric_dimensions because i have tried many forms but none have helped me get data from amazon.
thanks,

[aws_cloudwatch://es00-ec2]
aws_account = aws-es00
aws_region = eu-west-1
host = aws-op
metric_dimensions = [{"Name": "InstanceId","Value": "i-264d4964"}]
metric_names = ["CPUUtilization"]
metric_namespace = AWS/EC2
period = 300
polling_interval = 300
sourcetype = aws:cloudwatch
statistics = ["Maximum"]

Hi all,

Finally it works with this stanza...

[aws_cloudwatch://xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx]
aws_account = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
aws_region = xxxxxxxxxx
host = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
metric_dimensions = [{"LoadBalancerName":["xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"]},{"AvailabilityZone":["eu-we
st-1c"]},{"LoadBalancerName":["xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"]},{"AvailabilityZone":["eu-west-1a"]}]
metric_names = ["Latency","BackendConnectionErrors","SurgeQueueLength","RequestCount","HealthyHostCount","
UnHealthyHostCount","HTTPCode_Backend_4XX","HTTPCode_Backend_2XX","HTTPCode_Backend_3XX"]
metric_namespace = AWS/ELB
period = 300
polling_interval = 600
sourcetype = aws:cloudwatch
statistics = ["Average","Maximum","Minimum"]
