Integration Update: AWS Route 53 Metrics & Policies

About

Amazon Route 53 is a cloud Domain Name System (DNS) web service that translates names like www.example.com into numeric IP addresses like 192.0.2.1; it is also fully compliant with IPv6. Metricly now supports some out-of-the-box default policies and metrics for Route 53.

What you’ll need to get started:

Packaged Policies

  • Connection Time: The connection time is higher than usual. ConnectionTime is the average time, in milliseconds, that it took Route 53 health checkers to establish a TCP connection with the endpoint.
  • Health Check Status: The Health Check failed. HealthCheckStatus is the status of the health check endpoint that CloudWatch is checking. 1 indicates healthy, and 0 indicates unhealthy.
  • Time of First Byte: The time to first byte is higher than usual. TimeToFirstByte is the average time, in milliseconds, that it took Route 53 health checkers to receive the first byte of the response to an HTTP or HTTPS request.
