Main.Cloudwatch.delete_alarmsMethod
delete_alarms(alarm_names)
delete_alarms(alarm_names, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Deletes the specified alarms. You can delete up to 100 alarms in one operation. However, this total can include no more than one composite alarm. For example, you could delete 99 metric alarms and one composite alarms with one operation, but you can't delete two composite alarms with one operation. In the event of an error, no alarms are deleted. It is possible to create a loop or cycle of composite alarms, where composite alarm A depends on composite alarm B, and composite alarm B also depends on composite alarm A. In this scenario, you can't delete any composite alarm that is part of the cycle because there is always still a composite alarm that depends on that alarm that you want to delete. To get out of such a situation, you must break the cycle by changing the rule of one of the composite alarms in the cycle to remove a dependency that creates the cycle. The simplest change to make to break a cycle is to change the AlarmRule of one of the alarms to false. Additionally, the evaluation of composite alarms stops if CloudWatch detects a cycle in the evaluation path.

Main.Cloudwatch.describe_alarmsMethod
describe_alarms()
describe_alarms(params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Retrieves the specified alarms. You can filter the results by specifying a prefix for the alarm name, the alarm state, or a prefix for any action. To use this operation and return information about composite alarms, you must be signed on with the cloudwatch:DescribeAlarms permission that is scoped to *. You can't return information about composite alarms if your cloudwatch:DescribeAlarms permission has a narrower scope.

Optional Parameters

Optional parameters can be passed as a params::Dict{String,<:Any}. Valid keys are:

  • "ActionPrefix": Use this parameter to filter the results of the operation to only those alarms that use a certain alarm action. For example, you could specify the ARN of an SNS topic to find all alarms that send notifications to that topic.
  • "AlarmNamePrefix": An alarm name prefix. If you specify this parameter, you receive information about all alarms that have names that start with this prefix. If this parameter is specified, you cannot specify AlarmNames.
  • "AlarmNames": The names of the alarms to retrieve information about.
  • "AlarmTypes": Use this parameter to specify whether you want the operation to return metric alarms or composite alarms. If you omit this parameter, only metric alarms are returned.
  • "ChildrenOfAlarmName": If you use this parameter and specify the name of a composite alarm, the operation returns information about the "children" alarms of the alarm you specify. These are the metric alarms and composite alarms referenced in the AlarmRule field of the composite alarm that you specify in ChildrenOfAlarmName. Information about the composite alarm that you name in ChildrenOfAlarmName is not returned. If you specify ChildrenOfAlarmName, you cannot specify any other parameters in the request except for MaxRecords and NextToken. If you do so, you receive a validation error. Only the Alarm Name, ARN, StateValue (OK/ALARM/INSUFFICIENT_DATA), and StateUpdatedTimestamp information are returned by this operation when you use this parameter. To get complete information about these alarms, perform another DescribeAlarms operation and specify the parent alarm names in the AlarmNames parameter.
  • "MaxRecords": The maximum number of alarm descriptions to retrieve.
  • "NextToken": The token returned by a previous call to indicate that there is more data available.
  • "ParentsOfAlarmName": If you use this parameter and specify the name of a metric or composite alarm, the operation returns information about the "parent" alarms of the alarm you specify. These are the composite alarms that have AlarmRule parameters that reference the alarm named in ParentsOfAlarmName. Information about the alarm that you specify in ParentsOfAlarmName is not returned. If you specify ParentsOfAlarmName, you cannot specify any other parameters in the request except for MaxRecords and NextToken. If you do so, you receive a validation error.

This operation returns the time series data collected by a Contributor Insights rule. The data includes the identity and number of contributors to the log group. You can also optionally return one or more statistics about each data point in the time series. These statistics can include the following: UniqueContributors – the number of unique contributors for each data point. MaxContributorValue – the value of the top contributor for each data point. The identity of the contributor might change for each data point in the graph. If this rule aggregates by COUNT, the top contributor for each data point is the contributor with the most occurrences in that period. If the rule aggregates by SUM, the top contributor is the contributor with the highest sum in the log field specified by the rule's Value, during that period. SampleCount – the number of data points matched by the rule. Sum – the sum of the values from all contributors during the time period represented by that data point. Minimum – the minimum value from a single observation during the time period represented by that data point. Maximum – the maximum value from a single observation during the time period represented by that data point. Average – the average value from all contributors during the time period represented by that data point.

Arguments

Main.Cloudwatch.get_metric_dataMethod
get_metric_data(end_time, metric_data_queries, start_time)
get_metric_data(end_time, metric_data_queries, start_time, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

You can use the GetMetricData API to retrieve CloudWatch metric values. The operation can also include a CloudWatch Metrics Insights query, and one or more metric math functions. A GetMetricData operation that does not include a query can retrieve as many as 500 different metrics in a single request, with a total of as many as 100,800 data points. You can also optionally perform metric math expressions on the values of the returned statistics, to create new time series that represent new insights into your data. For example, using Lambda metrics, you could divide the Errors metric by the Invocations metric to get an error rate time series. For more information about metric math expressions, see Metric Math Syntax and Functions in the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide. If you include a Metrics Insights query, each GetMetricData operation can include only one query. But the same GetMetricData operation can also retrieve other metrics. Metrics Insights queries can query only the most recent three hours of metric data. For more information about Metrics Insights, see Query your metrics with CloudWatch Metrics Insights. Calls to the GetMetricData API have a different pricing structure than calls to GetMetricStatistics. For more information about pricing, see Amazon CloudWatch Pricing. Amazon CloudWatch retains metric data as follows: Data points with a period of less than 60 seconds are available for 3 hours. These data points are high-resolution metrics and are available only for custom metrics that have been defined with a StorageResolution of 1. Data points with a period of 60 seconds (1-minute) are available for 15 days. Data points with a period of 300 seconds (5-minute) are available for 63 days. Data points with a period of 3600 seconds (1 hour) are available for 455 days (15 months). Data points that are initially published with a shorter period are aggregated together for long-term storage. For example, if you collect data using a period of 1 minute, the data remains available for 15 days with 1-minute resolution. After 15 days, this data is still available, but is aggregated and retrievable only with a resolution of 5 minutes. After 63 days, the data is further aggregated and is available with a resolution of 1 hour. If you omit Unit in your request, all data that was collected with any unit is returned, along with the corresponding units that were specified when the data was reported to CloudWatch. If you specify a unit, the operation returns only data that was collected with that unit specified. If you specify a unit that does not match the data collected, the results of the operation are null. CloudWatch does not perform unit conversions. Using Metrics Insights queries with metric math You can't mix a Metric Insights query and metric math syntax in the same expression, but you can reference results from a Metrics Insights query within other Metric math expressions. A Metrics Insights query without a GROUP BY clause returns a single time-series (TS), and can be used as input for a metric math expression that expects a single time series. A Metrics Insights query with a GROUP BY clause returns an array of time-series (TS[]), and can be used as input for a metric math expression that expects an array of time series.

Arguments

  • end_time: The time stamp indicating the latest data to be returned. The value specified is exclusive; results include data points up to the specified time stamp. For better performance, specify StartTime and EndTime values that align with the value of the metric's Period and sync up with the beginning and end of an hour. For example, if the Period of a metric is 5 minutes, specifying 12:05 or 12:30 as EndTime can get a faster response from CloudWatch than setting 12:07 or 12:29 as the EndTime.
  • metric_data_queries: The metric queries to be returned. A single GetMetricData call can include as many as 500 MetricDataQuery structures. Each of these structures can specify either a metric to retrieve, a Metrics Insights query, or a math expression to perform on retrieved data.
  • start_time: The time stamp indicating the earliest data to be returned. The value specified is inclusive; results include data points with the specified time stamp. CloudWatch rounds the specified time stamp as follows: Start time less than 15 days ago - Round down to the nearest whole minute. For example, 12:32:34 is rounded down to 12:32:00. Start time between 15 and 63 days ago - Round down to the nearest 5-minute clock interval. For example, 12:32:34 is rounded down to 12:30:00. Start time greater than 63 days ago - Round down to the nearest 1-hour clock interval. For example, 12:32:34 is rounded down to 12:00:00. If you set Period to 5, 10, or 30, the start time of your request is rounded down to the nearest time that corresponds to even 5-, 10-, or 30-second divisions of a minute. For example, if you make a query at (HH:mm:ss) 01:05:23 for the previous 10-second period, the start time of your request is rounded down and you receive data from 01:05:10 to 01:05:20. If you make a query at 15:07:17 for the previous 5 minutes of data, using a period of 5 seconds, you receive data timestamped between 15:02:15 and 15:07:15. For better performance, specify StartTime and EndTime values that align with the value of the metric's Period and sync up with the beginning and end of an hour. For example, if the Period of a metric is 5 minutes, specifying 12:05 or 12:30 as StartTime can get a faster response from CloudWatch than setting 12:07 or 12:29 as the StartTime.

Optional Parameters

Optional parameters can be passed as a params::Dict{String,<:Any}. Valid keys are:

  • "LabelOptions": This structure includes the Timezone parameter, which you can use to specify your time zone so that the labels of returned data display the correct time for your time zone.
  • "MaxDatapoints": The maximum number of data points the request should return before paginating. If you omit this, the default of 100,800 is used.
  • "NextToken": Include this value, if it was returned by the previous GetMetricData operation, to get the next set of data points.
  • "ScanBy": The order in which data points should be returned. TimestampDescending returns the newest data first and paginates when the MaxDatapoints limit is reached. TimestampAscending returns the oldest data first and paginates when the MaxDatapoints limit is reached.
source
Main.Cloudwatch.get_metric_statisticsMethod
get_metric_statistics(end_time, metric_name, namespace, period, start_time)
get_metric_statistics(end_time, metric_name, namespace, period, start_time, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Gets statistics for the specified metric. The maximum number of data points returned from a single call is 1,440. If you request more than 1,440 data points, CloudWatch returns an error. To reduce the number of data points, you can narrow the specified time range and make multiple requests across adjacent time ranges, or you can increase the specified period. Data points are not returned in chronological order. CloudWatch aggregates data points based on the length of the period that you specify. For example, if you request statistics with a one-hour period, CloudWatch aggregates all data points with time stamps that fall within each one-hour period. Therefore, the number of values aggregated by CloudWatch is larger than the number of data points returned. CloudWatch needs raw data points to calculate percentile statistics. If you publish data using a statistic set instead, you can only retrieve percentile statistics for this data if one of the following conditions is true: The SampleCount value of the statistic set is 1. The Min and the Max values of the statistic set are equal. Percentile statistics are not available for metrics when any of the metric values are negative numbers. Amazon CloudWatch retains metric data as follows: Data points with a period of less than 60 seconds are available for 3 hours. These data points are high-resolution metrics and are available only for custom metrics that have been defined with a StorageResolution of 1. Data points with a period of 60 seconds (1-minute) are available for 15 days. Data points with a period of 300 seconds (5-minute) are available for 63 days. Data points with a period of 3600 seconds (1 hour) are available for 455 days (15 months). Data points that are initially published with a shorter period are aggregated together for long-term storage. For example, if you collect data using a period of 1 minute, the data remains available for 15 days with 1-minute resolution. After 15 days, this data is still available, but is aggregated and retrievable only with a resolution of 5 minutes. After 63 days, the data is further aggregated and is available with a resolution of 1 hour. CloudWatch started retaining 5-minute and 1-hour metric data as of July 9, 2016. For information about metrics and dimensions supported by Amazon Web Services services, see the Amazon CloudWatch Metrics and Dimensions Reference in the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide.

Arguments

  • end_time: The time stamp that determines the last data point to return. The value specified is exclusive; results include data points up to the specified time stamp. In a raw HTTP query, the time stamp must be in ISO 8601 UTC format (for example, 2016-10-10T23:00:00Z).
  • metric_name: The name of the metric, with or without spaces.
  • namespace: The namespace of the metric, with or without spaces.
  • period: The granularity, in seconds, of the returned data points. For metrics with regular resolution, a period can be as short as one minute (60 seconds) and must be a multiple of 60. For high-resolution metrics that are collected at intervals of less than one minute, the period can be 1, 5, 10, 30, 60, or any multiple of 60. High-resolution metrics are those metrics stored by a PutMetricData call that includes a StorageResolution of 1 second. If the StartTime parameter specifies a time stamp that is greater than 3 hours ago, you must specify the period as follows or no data points in that time range is returned: Start time between 3 hours and 15 days ago - Use a multiple of 60 seconds (1 minute). Start time between 15 and 63 days ago - Use a multiple of 300 seconds (5 minutes). Start time greater than 63 days ago - Use a multiple of 3600 seconds (1 hour).
  • start_time: The time stamp that determines the first data point to return. Start times are evaluated relative to the time that CloudWatch receives the request. The value specified is inclusive; results include data points with the specified time stamp. In a raw HTTP query, the time stamp must be in ISO 8601 UTC format (for example, 2016-10-03T23:00:00Z). CloudWatch rounds the specified time stamp as follows: Start time less than 15 days ago - Round down to the nearest whole minute. For example, 12:32:34 is rounded down to 12:32:00. Start time between 15 and 63 days ago - Round down to the nearest 5-minute clock interval. For example, 12:32:34 is rounded down to 12:30:00. Start time greater than 63 days ago - Round down to the nearest 1-hour clock interval. For example, 12:32:34 is rounded down to 12:00:00. If you set Period to 5, 10, or 30, the start time of your request is rounded down to the nearest time that corresponds to even 5-, 10-, or 30-second divisions of a minute. For example, if you make a query at (HH:mm:ss) 01:05:23 for the previous 10-second period, the start time of your request is rounded down and you receive data from 01:05:10 to 01:05:20. If you make a query at 15:07:17 for the previous 5 minutes of data, using a period of 5 seconds, you receive data timestamped between 15:02:15 and 15:07:15.

Optional Parameters

Optional parameters can be passed as a params::Dict{String,<:Any}. Valid keys are:

  • "Dimensions": The dimensions. If the metric contains multiple dimensions, you must include a value for each dimension. CloudWatch treats each unique combination of dimensions as a separate metric. If a specific combination of dimensions was not published, you can't retrieve statistics for it. You must specify the same dimensions that were used when the metrics were created. For an example, see Dimension Combinations in the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide. For more information about specifying dimensions, see Publishing Metrics in the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide.
  • "ExtendedStatistics": The percentile statistics. Specify values between p0.0 and p100. When calling GetMetricStatistics, you must specify either Statistics or ExtendedStatistics, but not both. Percentile statistics are not available for metrics when any of the metric values are negative numbers.
  • "Statistics": The metric statistics, other than percentile. For percentile statistics, use ExtendedStatistics. When calling GetMetricStatistics, you must specify either Statistics or ExtendedStatistics, but not both.
  • "Unit": The unit for a given metric. If you omit Unit, all data that was collected with any unit is returned, along with the corresponding units that were specified when the data was reported to CloudWatch. If you specify a unit, the operation returns only data that was collected with that unit specified. If you specify a unit that does not match the data collected, the results of the operation are null. CloudWatch does not perform unit conversions.

  • "OutputFormat": The format of the resulting image. Only PNG images are supported. The default is png. If you specify png, the API returns an HTTP response with the content-type set to text/xml. The image data is in a MetricWidgetImage field. For example: &lt;GetMetricWidgetImageResponse xmlns=&lt;URLstring&gt;&gt; &lt;GetMetricWidgetImageResult&gt; &lt;MetricWidgetImage&gt; iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAAlgAAAGQEAYAAAAip... &lt;/MetricWidgetImage&gt; &lt;/GetMetricWidgetImageResult&gt; &lt;ResponseMetadata&gt; &lt;RequestId&gt;6f0d4192-4d42-11e8-82c1-f539a07e0e3b&lt;/RequestId&gt; &lt;/ResponseMetadata&gt; &lt;/GetMetricWidgetImageResponse&gt; The image/png setting is intended only for custom HTTP requests. For most use cases, and all actions using an Amazon Web Services SDK, you should use png. If you specify image/png, the HTTP response has a content-type set to image/png, and the body of the response is a PNG image.

source
Main.Cloudwatch.put_composite_alarmMethod
put_composite_alarm(alarm_name, alarm_rule)
put_composite_alarm(alarm_name, alarm_rule, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Creates or updates a composite alarm. When you create a composite alarm, you specify a rule expression for the alarm that takes into account the alarm states of other alarms that you have created. The composite alarm goes into ALARM state only if all conditions of the rule are met. The alarms specified in a composite alarm's rule expression can include metric alarms and other composite alarms. The rule expression of a composite alarm can include as many as 100 underlying alarms. Any single alarm can be included in the rule expressions of as many as 150 composite alarms. Using composite alarms can reduce alarm noise. You can create multiple metric alarms, and also create a composite alarm and set up alerts only for the composite alarm. For example, you could create a composite alarm that goes into ALARM state only when more than one of the underlying metric alarms are in ALARM state. Currently, the only alarm actions that can be taken by composite alarms are notifying SNS topics. It is possible to create a loop or cycle of composite alarms, where composite alarm A depends on composite alarm B, and composite alarm B also depends on composite alarm A. In this scenario, you can't delete any composite alarm that is part of the cycle because there is always still a composite alarm that depends on that alarm that you want to delete. To get out of such a situation, you must break the cycle by changing the rule of one of the composite alarms in the cycle to remove a dependency that creates the cycle. The simplest change to make to break a cycle is to change the AlarmRule of one of the alarms to false. Additionally, the evaluation of composite alarms stops if CloudWatch detects a cycle in the evaluation path. When this operation creates an alarm, the alarm state is immediately set to INSUFFICIENTDATA. The alarm is then evaluated and its state is set appropriately. Any actions associated with the new state are then executed. For a composite alarm, this initial time after creation is the only time that the alarm can be in INSUFFICIENTDATA state. When you update an existing alarm, its state is left unchanged, but the update completely overwrites the previous configuration of the alarm. To use this operation, you must be signed on with the cloudwatch:PutCompositeAlarm permission that is scoped to *. You can't create a composite alarms if your cloudwatch:PutCompositeAlarm permission has a narrower scope. If you are an IAM user, you must have iam:CreateServiceLinkedRole to create a composite alarm that has Systems Manager OpsItem actions.

Arguments

  • alarm_name: The name for the composite alarm. This name must be unique within the Region.
  • alarm_rule: An expression that specifies which other alarms are to be evaluated to determine this composite alarm's state. For each alarm that you reference, you designate a function that specifies whether that alarm needs to be in ALARM state, OK state, or INSUFFICIENTDATA state. You can use operators (AND, OR and NOT) to combine multiple functions in a single expression. You can use parenthesis to logically group the functions in your expression. You can use either alarm names or ARNs to reference the other alarms that are to be evaluated. Functions can include the following: ALARM("alarm-name or alarm-ARN") is TRUE if the named alarm is in ALARM state. OK("alarm-name or alarm-ARN") is TRUE if the named alarm is in OK state. INSUFFICIENTDATA("alarm-name or alarm-ARN") is TRUE if the named alarm is in INSUFFICIENT_DATA state. TRUE always evaluates to TRUE. FALSE always evaluates to FALSE. TRUE and FALSE are useful for testing a complex AlarmRule structure, and for testing your alarm actions. Alarm names specified in AlarmRule can be surrounded with double-quotes ("), but do not have to be. The following are some examples of AlarmRule: ALARM(CPUUtilizationTooHigh) AND ALARM(DiskReadOpsTooHigh) specifies that the composite alarm goes into ALARM state only if both CPUUtilizationTooHigh and DiskReadOpsTooHigh alarms are in ALARM state. ALARM(CPUUtilizationTooHigh) AND NOT ALARM(DeploymentInProgress) specifies that the alarm goes to ALARM state if CPUUtilizationTooHigh is in ALARM state and DeploymentInProgress is not in ALARM state. This example reduces alarm noise during a known deployment window. (ALARM(CPUUtilizationTooHigh) OR ALARM(DiskReadOpsTooHigh)) AND OK(NetworkOutTooHigh) goes into ALARM state if CPUUtilizationTooHigh OR DiskReadOpsTooHigh is in ALARM state, and if NetworkOutTooHigh is in OK state. This provides another example of using a composite alarm to prevent noise. This rule ensures that you are not notified with an alarm action on high CPU or disk usage if a known network problem is also occurring. The AlarmRule can specify as many as 100 "children" alarms. The AlarmRule expression can have as many as 500 elements. Elements are child alarms, TRUE or FALSE statements, and parentheses.

Optional Parameters

Optional parameters can be passed as a params::Dict{String,<:Any}. Valid keys are:

  • "ActionsEnabled": Indicates whether actions should be executed during any changes to the alarm state of the composite alarm. The default is TRUE.
  • "ActionsSuppressor": Actions will be suppressed if the suppressor alarm is in the ALARM state. ActionsSuppressor can be an AlarmName or an Amazon Resource Name (ARN) from an existing alarm.
  • "ActionsSuppressorExtensionPeriod": The maximum time in seconds that the composite alarm waits after suppressor alarm goes out of the ALARM state. After this time, the composite alarm performs its actions. ExtensionPeriod is required only when ActionsSuppressor is specified.
  • "ActionsSuppressorWaitPeriod": The maximum time in seconds that the composite alarm waits for the suppressor alarm to go into the ALARM state. After this time, the composite alarm performs its actions. WaitPeriod is required only when ActionsSuppressor is specified.
  • "AlarmActions": The actions to execute when this alarm transitions to the ALARM state from any other state. Each action is specified as an Amazon Resource Name (ARN). Valid Values: arn:aws:sns:region:account-id:sns-topic-name | arn:aws:ssm:region:account-id:opsitem:severity
  • "AlarmDescription": The description for the composite alarm.
  • "InsufficientDataActions": The actions to execute when this alarm transitions to the INSUFFICIENT_DATA state from any other state. Each action is specified as an Amazon Resource Name (ARN). Valid Values: arn:aws:sns:region:account-id:sns-topic-name
  • "OKActions": The actions to execute when this alarm transitions to an OK state from any other state. Each action is specified as an Amazon Resource Name (ARN). Valid Values: arn:aws:sns:region:account-id:sns-topic-name
  • "Tags": A list of key-value pairs to associate with the composite alarm. You can associate as many as 50 tags with an alarm. Tags can help you organize and categorize your resources. You can also use them to scope user permissions, by granting a user permission to access or change only resources with certain tag values.

Main.Cloudwatch.put_dashboardMethod
put_dashboard(dashboard_body, dashboard_name)
put_dashboard(dashboard_body, dashboard_name, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Creates a dashboard if it does not already exist, or updates an existing dashboard. If you update a dashboard, the entire contents are replaced with what you specify here. All dashboards in your account are global, not region-specific. A simple way to create a dashboard using PutDashboard is to copy an existing dashboard. To copy an existing dashboard using the console, you can load the dashboard and then use the View/edit source command in the Actions menu to display the JSON block for that dashboard. Another way to copy a dashboard is to use GetDashboard, and then use the data returned within DashboardBody as the template for the new dashboard when you call PutDashboard. When you create a dashboard with PutDashboard, a good practice is to add a text widget at the top of the dashboard with a message that the dashboard was created by script and should not be changed in the console. This message could also point console users to the location of the DashboardBody script or the CloudFormation template used to create the dashboard.

Arguments

  • dashboard_body: The detailed information about the dashboard in JSON format, including the widgets to include and their location on the dashboard. This parameter is required. For more information about the syntax, see Dashboard Body Structure and Syntax.
  • dashboard_name: The name of the dashboard. If a dashboard with this name already exists, this call modifies that dashboard, replacing its current contents. Otherwise, a new dashboard is created. The maximum length is 255, and valid characters are A-Z, a-z, 0-9, "-", and "_". This parameter is required.
source
Main.Cloudwatch.put_insight_ruleMethod
put_insight_rule(rule_definition, rule_name)
put_insight_rule(rule_definition, rule_name, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Creates a Contributor Insights rule. Rules evaluate log events in a CloudWatch Logs log group, enabling you to find contributor data for the log events in that log group. For more information, see Using Contributor Insights to Analyze High-Cardinality Data. If you create a rule, delete it, and then re-create it with the same name, historical data from the first time the rule was created might not be available.

Arguments

  • rule_definition: The definition of the rule, as a JSON object. For details on the valid syntax, see Contributor Insights Rule Syntax.
  • rule_name: A unique name for the rule.

Optional Parameters

Optional parameters can be passed as a params::Dict{String,<:Any}. Valid keys are:

  • "RuleState": The state of the rule. Valid values are ENABLED and DISABLED.
  • "Tags": A list of key-value pairs to associate with the Contributor Insights rule. You can associate as many as 50 tags with a rule. Tags can help you organize and categorize your resources. You can also use them to scope user permissions, by granting a user permission to access or change only the resources that have certain tag values. To be able to associate tags with a rule, you must have the cloudwatch:TagResource permission in addition to the cloudwatch:PutInsightRule permission. If you are using this operation to update an existing Contributor Insights rule, any tags you specify in this parameter are ignored. To change the tags of an existing rule, use TagResource.
source
Main.Cloudwatch.put_managed_insight_rulesMethod
put_managed_insight_rules(managed_rules)
put_managed_insight_rules(managed_rules, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Creates a managed Contributor Insights rule for a specified Amazon Web Services resource. When you enable a managed rule, you create a Contributor Insights rule that collects data from Amazon Web Services services. You cannot edit these rules with PutInsightRule. The rules can be enabled, disabled, and deleted using EnableInsightRules, DisableInsightRules, and DeleteInsightRules. If a previously created managed rule is currently disabled, a subsequent call to this API will re-enable it. Use ListManagedInsightRules to describe all available rules.

Arguments

  • managed_rules: A list of ManagedRules to enable.
source
Main.Cloudwatch.put_metric_alarmMethod
put_metric_alarm(alarm_name, comparison_operator, evaluation_periods)
put_metric_alarm(alarm_name, comparison_operator, evaluation_periods, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Creates or updates an alarm and associates it with the specified metric, metric math expression, anomaly detection model, or Metrics Insights query. For more information about using a Metrics Insights query for an alarm, see Create alarms on Metrics Insights queries. Alarms based on anomaly detection models cannot have Auto Scaling actions. When this operation creates an alarm, the alarm state is immediately set to INSUFFICIENTDATA. The alarm is then evaluated and its state is set appropriately. Any actions associated with the new state are then executed. When you update an existing alarm, its state is left unchanged, but the update completely overwrites the previous configuration of the alarm. If you are an IAM user, you must have Amazon EC2 permissions for some alarm operations: The iam:CreateServiceLinkedRole for all alarms with EC2 actions The iam:CreateServiceLinkedRole to create an alarm with Systems Manager OpsItem actions. The first time you create an alarm in the Amazon Web Services Management Console, the CLI, or by using the PutMetricAlarm API, CloudWatch creates the necessary service-linked role for you. The service-linked roles are called AWSServiceRoleForCloudWatchEvents and AWSServiceRoleForCloudWatchAlarmsActionSSM. For more information, see Amazon Web Services service-linked role. Cross-account alarms You can set an alarm on metrics in the current account, or in another account. To create a cross-account alarm that watches a metric in a different account, you must have completed the following pre-requisites: The account where the metrics are located (the sharing account) must already have a sharing role named CloudWatch-CrossAccountSharingRole. If it does not already have this role, you must create it using the instructions in Set up a sharing account in Cross-account cross-Region CloudWatch console. The policy for that role must grant access to the ID of the account where you are creating the alarm. The account where you are creating the alarm (the monitoring account) must already have a service-linked role named AWSServiceRoleForCloudWatchCrossAccount to allow CloudWatch to assume the sharing role in the sharing account. If it does not, you must create it following the directions in Set up a monitoring account in Cross-account cross-Region CloudWatch console.

Arguments

  • alarm_name: The name for the alarm. This name must be unique within the Region.
  • comparison_operator: The arithmetic operation to use when comparing the specified statistic and threshold. The specified statistic value is used as the first operand. The values LessThanLowerOrGreaterThanUpperThreshold, LessThanLowerThreshold, and GreaterThanUpperThreshold are used only for alarms based on anomaly detection models.
  • evaluation_periods: The number of periods over which data is compared to the specified threshold. If you are setting an alarm that requires that a number of consecutive data points be breaching to trigger the alarm, this value specifies that number. If you are setting an "M out of N" alarm, this value is the N. An alarm's total current evaluation period can be no longer than one day, so this number multiplied by Period cannot be more than 86,400 seconds.

Optional Parameters

Optional parameters can be passed as a params::Dict{String,<:Any}. Valid keys are:

  • "ActionsEnabled": Indicates whether actions should be executed during any changes to the alarm state. The default is TRUE.
  • "AlarmActions": The actions to execute when this alarm transitions to the ALARM state from any other state. Each action is specified as an Amazon Resource Name (ARN). Valid Values: arn:aws:automate:region:ec2:stop | arn:aws:automate:region:ec2:terminate | arn:aws:automate:region:ec2:recover | arn:aws:automate:region:ec2:reboot | arn:aws:sns:region:account-id:sns-topic-name | arn:aws:autoscaling:region:account-id:scalingPolicy:policy-id:autoScalingGroupName/group-fri endly-name:policyName/policy-friendly-name | arn:aws:ssm:region:account-id:opsitem:severity | arn:aws:ssm-incidents::account-id:response-plan:response-plan-name Valid Values (for use with IAM roles): arn:aws:swf:region:account-id:action/actions/AWSEC2.InstanceId.Stop/1.0 | arn:aws:swf:region:account-id:action/actions/AWSEC2.InstanceId.Terminate/1.0 | arn:aws:swf:region:account-id:action/actions/AWSEC2.InstanceId.Reboot/1.0 | arn:aws:swf:region:account-id:action/actions/AWSEC2.InstanceId.Recover/1.0
  • "AlarmDescription": The description for the alarm.
  • "DatapointsToAlarm": The number of data points that must be breaching to trigger the alarm. This is used only if you are setting an "M out of N" alarm. In that case, this value is the M. For more information, see Evaluating an Alarm in the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide.
  • "Dimensions": The dimensions for the metric specified in MetricName.
  • "EvaluateLowSampleCountPercentile": Used only for alarms based on percentiles. If you specify ignore, the alarm state does not change during periods with too few data points to be statistically significant. If you specify evaluate or omit this parameter, the alarm is always evaluated and possibly changes state no matter how many data points are available. For more information, see Percentile-Based CloudWatch Alarms and Low Data Samples. Valid Values: evaluate | ignore
  • "ExtendedStatistic": The percentile statistic for the metric specified in MetricName. Specify a value between p0.0 and p100. When you call PutMetricAlarm and specify a MetricName, you must specify either Statistic or ExtendedStatistic, but not both.
  • "InsufficientDataActions": The actions to execute when this alarm transitions to the INSUFFICIENTDATA state from any other state. Each action is specified as an Amazon Resource Name (ARN). Valid Values: arn:aws:automate:region:ec2:stop | arn:aws:automate:region:ec2:terminate | arn:aws:automate:region:ec2:recover | arn:aws:automate:region:ec2:reboot | arn:aws:sns:region:account-id:sns-topic-name | arn:aws:autoscaling:region:account-id:scalingPolicy:policy-id:autoScalingGroupName/group-fri endly-name:policyName/policy-friendly-name Valid Values (for use with IAM roles): &gt;arn:aws:swf:region:account-id:action/actions/AWSEC2.InstanceId.Stop/1.0 | arn:aws:swf:region:account-id:action/actions/AWSEC2.InstanceId.Terminate/1.0 | arn:aws:swf:region:account-id:action/actions/AWSEC2.InstanceId.Reboot/1.0
  • "MetricName": The name for the metric associated with the alarm. For each PutMetricAlarm operation, you must specify either MetricName or a Metrics array. If you are creating an alarm based on a math expression, you cannot specify this parameter, or any of the Dimensions, Period, Namespace, Statistic, or ExtendedStatistic parameters. Instead, you specify all this information in the Metrics array.
  • "Metrics": An array of MetricDataQuery structures that enable you to create an alarm based on the result of a metric math expression. For each PutMetricAlarm operation, you must specify either MetricName or a Metrics array. Each item in the Metrics array either retrieves a metric or performs a math expression. One item in the Metrics array is the expression that the alarm watches. You designate this expression by setting ReturnData to true for this object in the array. For more information, see MetricDataQuery. If you use the Metrics parameter, you cannot include the MetricName, Dimensions, Period, Namespace, Statistic, or ExtendedStatistic parameters of PutMetricAlarm in the same operation. Instead, you retrieve the metrics you are using in your math expression as part of the Metrics array.
  • "Namespace": The namespace for the metric associated specified in MetricName.
  • "OKActions": The actions to execute when this alarm transitions to an OK state from any other state. Each action is specified as an Amazon Resource Name (ARN). Valid Values: arn:aws:automate:region:ec2:stop | arn:aws:automate:region:ec2:terminate | arn:aws:automate:region:ec2:recover | arn:aws:automate:region:ec2:reboot | arn:aws:sns:region:account-id:sns-topic-name | arn:aws:autoscaling:region:account-id:scalingPolicy:policy-id:autoScalingGroupName/group-fri endly-name:policyName/policy-friendly-name Valid Values (for use with IAM roles): arn:aws:swf:region:account-id:action/actions/AWSEC2.InstanceId.Stop/1.0 | arn:aws:swf:region:account-id:action/actions/AWSEC2.InstanceId.Terminate/1.0 | arn:aws:swf:region:account-id:action/actions/AWSEC2.InstanceId.Reboot/1.0 | arn:aws:swf:region:account-id:action/actions/AWSEC2.InstanceId.Recover/1.0
  • "Period": The length, in seconds, used each time the metric specified in MetricName is evaluated. Valid values are 10, 30, and any multiple of 60. Period is required for alarms based on static thresholds. If you are creating an alarm based on a metric math expression, you specify the period for each metric within the objects in the Metrics array. Be sure to specify 10 or 30 only for metrics that are stored by a PutMetricData call with a StorageResolution of 1. If you specify a period of 10 or 30 for a metric that does not have sub-minute resolution, the alarm still attempts to gather data at the period rate that you specify. In this case, it does not receive data for the attempts that do not correspond to a one-minute data resolution, and the alarm might often lapse into INSUFFICENT_DATA status. Specifying 10 or 30 also sets this alarm as a high-resolution alarm, which has a higher charge than other alarms. For more information about pricing, see Amazon CloudWatch Pricing. An alarm's total current evaluation period can be no longer than one day, so Period multiplied by EvaluationPeriods cannot be more than 86,400 seconds.
  • "Statistic": The statistic for the metric specified in MetricName, other than percentile. For percentile statistics, use ExtendedStatistic. When you call PutMetricAlarm and specify a MetricName, you must specify either Statistic or ExtendedStatistic, but not both.
  • "Tags": A list of key-value pairs to associate with the alarm. You can associate as many as 50 tags with an alarm. Tags can help you organize and categorize your resources. You can also use them to scope user permissions by granting a user permission to access or change only resources with certain tag values. If you are using this operation to update an existing alarm, any tags you specify in this parameter are ignored. To change the tags of an existing alarm, use TagResource or UntagResource.
  • "Threshold": The value against which the specified statistic is compared. This parameter is required for alarms based on static thresholds, but should not be used for alarms based on anomaly detection models.
  • "ThresholdMetricId": If this is an alarm based on an anomaly detection model, make this value match the ID of the ANOMALYDETECTIONBAND function. For an example of how to use this parameter, see the Anomaly Detection Model Alarm example on this page. If your alarm uses this parameter, it cannot have Auto Scaling actions.
  • "TreatMissingData": Sets how this alarm is to handle missing data points. If TreatMissingData is omitted, the default behavior of missing is used. For more information, see Configuring How CloudWatch Alarms Treats Missing Data. Valid Values: breaching | notBreaching | ignore | missing Alarms that evaluate metrics in the AWS/DynamoDB namespace always ignore missing data even if you choose a different option for TreatMissingData. When an AWS/DynamoDB metric has missing data, alarms that evaluate that metric remain in their current state.
  • "Unit": The unit of measure for the statistic. For example, the units for the Amazon EC2 NetworkIn metric are Bytes because NetworkIn tracks the number of bytes that an instance receives on all network interfaces. You can also specify a unit when you create a custom metric. Units help provide conceptual meaning to your data. Metric data points that specify a unit of measure, such as Percent, are aggregated separately. If you don't specify Unit, CloudWatch retrieves all unit types that have been published for the metric and attempts to evaluate the alarm. Usually, metrics are published with only one unit, so the alarm works as intended. However, if the metric is published with multiple types of units and you don't specify a unit, the alarm's behavior is not defined and it behaves unpredictably. We recommend omitting Unit so that you don't inadvertently specify an incorrect unit that is not published for this metric. Doing so causes the alarm to be stuck in the INSUFFICIENT DATA state.

Main.Cloudwatch.put_metric_dataMethod
put_metric_data(metric_data, namespace)
put_metric_data(metric_data, namespace, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Publishes metric data points to Amazon CloudWatch. CloudWatch associates the data points with the specified metric. If the specified metric does not exist, CloudWatch creates the metric. When CloudWatch creates a metric, it can take up to fifteen minutes for the metric to appear in calls to ListMetrics. You can publish either individual data points in the Value field, or arrays of values and the number of times each value occurred during the period by using the Values and Counts fields in the MetricDatum structure. Using the Values and Counts method enables you to publish up to 150 values per metric with one PutMetricData request, and supports retrieving percentile statistics on this data. Each PutMetricData request is limited to 1 MB in size for HTTP POST requests. You can send a payload compressed by gzip. Each request is also limited to no more than 1000 different metrics. Although the Value parameter accepts numbers of type Double, CloudWatch rejects values that are either too small or too large. Values must be in the range of -2^360 to 2^360. In addition, special values (for example, NaN, +Infinity, -Infinity) are not supported. You can use up to 30 dimensions per metric to further clarify what data the metric collects. Each dimension consists of a Name and Value pair. For more information about specifying dimensions, see Publishing Metrics in the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide. You specify the time stamp to be associated with each data point. You can specify time stamps that are as much as two weeks before the current date, and as much as 2 hours after the current day and time. Data points with time stamps from 24 hours ago or longer can take at least 48 hours to become available for GetMetricData or GetMetricStatistics from the time they are submitted. Data points with time stamps between 3 and 24 hours ago can take as much as 2 hours to become available for for GetMetricData or GetMetricStatistics. CloudWatch needs raw data points to calculate percentile statistics. If you publish data using a statistic set instead, you can only retrieve percentile statistics for this data if one of the following conditions is true: The SampleCount value of the statistic set is 1 and Min, Max, and Sum are all equal. The Min and Max are equal, and Sum is equal to Min multiplied by SampleCount.

Arguments

  • metric_data: The data for the metric. The array can include no more than 1000 metrics per call.
  • namespace: The namespace for the metric data. To avoid conflicts with Amazon Web Services service namespaces, you should not specify a namespace that begins with AWS/

Main.Cloudwatch.put_metric_streamMethod
put_metric_stream(firehose_arn, name, output_format, role_arn)
put_metric_stream(firehose_arn, name, output_format, role_arn, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Creates or updates a metric stream. Metric streams can automatically stream CloudWatch metrics to Amazon Web Services destinations, including Amazon S3, and to many third-party solutions. For more information, see Using Metric Streams. To create a metric stream, you must be signed in to an account that has the iam:PassRole permission and either the CloudWatchFullAccess policy or the cloudwatch:PutMetricStream permission. When you create or update a metric stream, you choose one of the following: Stream metrics from all metric namespaces in the account. Stream metrics from all metric namespaces in the account, except for the namespaces that you list in ExcludeFilters. Stream metrics from only the metric namespaces that you list in IncludeFilters. By default, a metric stream always sends the MAX, MIN, SUM, and SAMPLECOUNT statistics for each metric that is streamed. You can use the StatisticsConfigurations parameter to have the metric stream send additional statistics in the stream. Streaming additional statistics incurs additional costs. For more information, see Amazon CloudWatch Pricing. When you use PutMetricStream to create a new metric stream, the stream is created in the running state. If you use it to update an existing stream, the state of the stream is not changed.

Arguments

  • firehose_arn: The ARN of the Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose delivery stream to use for this metric stream. This Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose delivery stream must already exist and must be in the same account as the metric stream.
  • name: If you are creating a new metric stream, this is the name for the new stream. The name must be different than the names of other metric streams in this account and Region. If you are updating a metric stream, specify the name of that stream here. Valid characters are A-Z, a-z, 0-9, "-" and "_".
  • output_format: The output format for the stream. Valid values are json and opentelemetry0.7. For more information about metric stream output formats, see Metric streams output formats.
  • role_arn: The ARN of an IAM role that this metric stream will use to access Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose resources. This IAM role must already exist and must be in the same account as the metric stream. This IAM role must include the following permissions: firehose:PutRecord firehose:PutRecordBatch

Optional Parameters

Optional parameters can be passed as a params::Dict{String,<:Any}. Valid keys are:

  • "ExcludeFilters": If you specify this parameter, the stream sends metrics from all metric namespaces except for the namespaces that you specify here. You cannot include ExcludeFilters and IncludeFilters in the same operation.
  • "IncludeFilters": If you specify this parameter, the stream sends only the metrics from the metric namespaces that you specify here. You cannot include IncludeFilters and ExcludeFilters in the same operation.
  • "StatisticsConfigurations": By default, a metric stream always sends the MAX, MIN, SUM, and SAMPLECOUNT statistics for each metric that is streamed. You can use this parameter to have the metric stream also send additional statistics in the stream. This array can have up to 100 members. For each entry in this array, you specify one or more metrics and the list of additional statistics to stream for those metrics. The additional statistics that you can stream depend on the stream's OutputFormat. If the OutputFormat is json, you can stream any additional statistic that is supported by CloudWatch, listed in CloudWatch statistics definitions. If the OutputFormat is opentelemetry0.7, you can stream percentile statistics such as p95, p99.9, and so on.
  • "Tags": A list of key-value pairs to associate with the metric stream. You can associate as many as 50 tags with a metric stream. Tags can help you organize and categorize your resources. You can also use them to scope user permissions by granting a user permission to access or change only resources with certain tag values. You can use this parameter only when you are creating a new metric stream. If you are using this operation to update an existing metric stream, any tags you specify in this parameter are ignored. To change the tags of an existing metric stream, use TagResource or UntagResource.

Main.Cloudwatch.set_alarm_stateMethod
set_alarm_state(alarm_name, state_reason, state_value)
set_alarm_state(alarm_name, state_reason, state_value, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Temporarily sets the state of an alarm for testing purposes. When the updated state differs from the previous value, the action configured for the appropriate state is invoked. For example, if your alarm is configured to send an Amazon SNS message when an alarm is triggered, temporarily changing the alarm state to ALARM sends an SNS message. Metric alarms returns to their actual state quickly, often within seconds. Because the metric alarm state change happens quickly, it is typically only visible in the alarm's History tab in the Amazon CloudWatch console or through DescribeAlarmHistory. If you use SetAlarmState on a composite alarm, the composite alarm is not guaranteed to return to its actual state. It returns to its actual state only once any of its children alarms change state. It is also reevaluated if you update its configuration. If an alarm triggers EC2 Auto Scaling policies or application Auto Scaling policies, you must include information in the StateReasonData parameter to enable the policy to take the correct action.

Arguments

  • alarm_name: The name of the alarm.
  • state_reason: The reason that this alarm is set to this specific state, in text format.
  • state_value: The value of the state.

Optional Parameters

Optional parameters can be passed as a params::Dict{String,<:Any}. Valid keys are:

  • "StateReasonData": The reason that this alarm is set to this specific state, in JSON format. For SNS or EC2 alarm actions, this is just informational. But for EC2 Auto Scaling or application Auto Scaling alarm actions, the Auto Scaling policy uses the information in this field to take the correct action.
source
Main.Cloudwatch.start_metric_streamsMethod
start_metric_streams(names)
start_metric_streams(names, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Starts the streaming of metrics for one or more of your metric streams.

Arguments

  • names: The array of the names of metric streams to start streaming. This is an "all or nothing" operation. If you do not have permission to access all of the metric streams that you list here, then none of the streams that you list in the operation will start streaming.
source
Main.Cloudwatch.stop_metric_streamsMethod
stop_metric_streams(names)
stop_metric_streams(names, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Stops the streaming of metrics for one or more of your metric streams.

Arguments

  • names: The array of the names of metric streams to stop streaming. This is an "all or nothing" operation. If you do not have permission to access all of the metric streams that you list here, then none of the streams that you list in the operation will stop streaming.
source
Main.Cloudwatch.tag_resourceMethod
tag_resource(resource_arn, tags)
tag_resource(resource_arn, tags, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Assigns one or more tags (key-value pairs) to the specified CloudWatch resource. Currently, the only CloudWatch resources that can be tagged are alarms and Contributor Insights rules. Tags can help you organize and categorize your resources. You can also use them to scope user permissions by granting a user permission to access or change only resources with certain tag values. Tags don't have any semantic meaning to Amazon Web Services and are interpreted strictly as strings of characters. You can use the TagResource action with an alarm that already has tags. If you specify a new tag key for the alarm, this tag is appended to the list of tags associated with the alarm. If you specify a tag key that is already associated with the alarm, the new tag value that you specify replaces the previous value for that tag. You can associate as many as 50 tags with a CloudWatch resource.

Arguments

  • resource_arn: The ARN of the CloudWatch resource that you're adding tags to. The ARN format of an alarm is arn:aws:cloudwatch:Region:account-id:alarm:alarm-name The ARN format of a Contributor Insights rule is arn:aws:cloudwatch:Region:account-id:insight-rule:insight-rule-name For more information about ARN format, see Resource Types Defined by Amazon CloudWatch in the Amazon Web Services General Reference.
  • tags: The list of key-value pairs to associate with the alarm.
source
Main.Cloudwatch.untag_resourceMethod
untag_resource(resource_arn, tag_keys)
untag_resource(resource_arn, tag_keys, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Removes one or more tags from the specified resource.

Arguments

  • resource_arn: The ARN of the CloudWatch resource that you're removing tags from. The ARN format of an alarm is arn:aws:cloudwatch:Region:account-id:alarm:alarm-name The ARN format of a Contributor Insights rule is arn:aws:cloudwatch:Region:account-id:insight-rule:insight-rule-name For more information about ARN format, see Resource Types Defined by Amazon CloudWatch in the Amazon Web Services General Reference.
  • tag_keys: The list of tag keys to remove from the resource.
