AWS Plugin services

Overview Copied

The AWS plugin is a Collection Agent plugin that gathers metrics through AWS CloudWatch. This plugin also provides an API Destination that can interact with AWS services, such as EventBridge and SNS.

Monitored AWS services Copied

The AWS plugin can also get CloudWatch metrics from the following AWS services. See the Required AWS plugin permissions for each service.

If the write capacity of the index is too low, the incoming write activity during the backfill phase might be throttled. This can increase the time it takes to create the index.
You should monitor this statistic while the index is being built to determine whether the write capacity of the index is underprovisioned.
OnlineIndexPercentageProgress gauge TableName, Namespace, Region average 300 Percentage of completion when a new global secondary index is being added to a table. DynamoDB must first allocate resources for the new index, and then backfill attributes from the table into the index. For large tables, this process might take a long time.
You should monitor this statistic to view the relative progress as DynamoDB builds the index.
OnlineIndexThrottleEvents gauge TableName, Namespace, Region average 300 Number of write throttle events that occur when adding a new global secondary index to a table.

SuccessfulRequestLatency can provide two different kinds of information: the elapsed time for successful requests (Minimum, Maximum, Sum, or Average) or the number of successful requests (SampleCount). SuccessfulRequestLatency reflects activity only within DynamoDB or Amazon DynamoDB Streams, and does not take into account network latency or client-side activity.
SystemErrors gauge TableName, Namespace, Region sum 300 Requests to DynamoDB or Amazon DynamoDB Streams that generate an HTTP 500 status code during the specified time period. An HTTP 500 usually indicates an internal service error.
TableClass attribute TableName, Namespace, Region The table class of the specified table. Valid values are STANDARD and STANDARD_INFREQUENT_ACCESS.
TableCount gauge TableName, Namespace, Region max 300 Number of active tables of an account.
TableStatus attribute TableName, Namespace, Region Current state of the table.

ThrottledRequests gauge TableName, Namespace, Region sum 300 Requests to DynamoDB that exceed the provisioned throughput limits on a resource (such as a table or an index).
ThrottledRequests is incremented by one if any event within a request exceeds a provisioned throughput limit. For example, if you update an item in a table with global secondary indexes, there are multiple events—a write to the table, and a write to each index. If one or more of these events are throttled, then ThrottledRequests is incremented by one.
TimeToLiveDeletedItemCount gauge TableName, Namespace, Region average 300 Number of items deleted by Time to Live (TTL) during the specified time period. This metric helps you monitor the rate of TTL deletions on the table.
TransactionConflict gauge TableName, Namespace, Region sum 300 Rejected item-level requests due to transactional conflicts between concurrent requests on the same items.
UserErrors gauge TableName, Namespace, Region sum 300 Requests to DynamoDB or Amazon DynamoDB Streams that generate an HTTP 400 status code during the specified time period. An HTTP 400 usually indicates a client-side error, such as an invalid combination of parameters, an attempt to update a non-existent table, or an incorrect request signature.
WriteCapacityMode attribute TableName, Namespace, Region Write capacity can either be On-Demand or Partitioned depending on the write capacity settings.
WriteThrottleEvents gauge TableName, Namespace, Region sum 300 Requests to DynamoDB that exceed the provisioned write capacity units for a table or a global secondary index.
