  18. 18. AWS CloudWatch Alarms
  19. 19. AWS CloudWatch Alarms• Example Use Cases• EC2: Tell me if my instance needs attention• DynamoDB: Help me balance cost and performance• Billing: Tell me when Im exceeding my AWS budget
  20. 20. • Fallacies of Distributed Computing• The network is reliable• Latency is zero• Bandwidth is infinite• The network is secure• Topology doesnt change• There is one administrator• Transport cost is zero• The network is homogeneousInside
  21. 21. Inside• 1 datapoint per metric, per minute, per resource• AWS is VERY big, VERY dynamic, growing VERY fast!• Aggregating data to produce meaningfulstatistics• What is CPU utilization across my fleet?• Today it is 50% - Yay!• Yesterday it was 25% – Huh?!• Last week it was 5% – Yikes?!
  22. 22. Inside• Data Access Patterns• Realtime data can be VERY valuable to wideaudiences – ‘Million Dollar Minutes’• LOTS of older data, that might still be VERY valuableto narrow audiences• Be the Last Man Standing• What happens when there is a power event in a DC?• Who watches the watchmen?
