CloudWatch && CloudTrail

Hi! So, we can say CloudTrail is a subset of CloudWatch? The first feels like is able to track more specific aspects of AWS

CloudTrail is a log stream that can track any actions taken inside your AWS environment (AWS account, VPC, S3 buckets, etc)
CloudWatch monitors the health and performance of AWS resources.

CloudWatch: “What is happening on AWS?” and logging all the events for a particular service or application.

CloudTrail: “Who did what on AWS?” and the API calls to the service or resource.
