AWS ChatOps for Amazon CloudWatch Alarm

undefined

Fleets of EC2 web servers

Running EC2 instances inside an Auto Scaling Group fronted by a Load Balancer is a popular pattern on AWS. CloudWatch alarms can keep an eye on network usage, load balancer latency, HTTP 5XX errors, and much more.

RDS Databases

RDS provides fully managed, relational databases engines on AWS. Define CloudWatch alarms to observe free storage space, available memory, and CPU usage to keep your database up and running.

Serverless

Modern HTTP APIs are built with Lambda and API Gateway. Both send metrics to CloudWatch. Define alarms to watch failed or throttled Lambda invocations, HTTP 5XX errors, or API Gateway latency.

How marbot works

undefined

1. CloudWatch alarm

You create a CloudWatch alarm to monitor a metric. If the metric crosses a configured threshold, an alert is sent to marbot via SNS.

2. marbot

Once marbot receives the alarm, the severity is analyzed and duplicates are aggregated to reduce noise. marbot also enriches the alarm with Quick Links for quick access to the AWS Management Console. Finally, marbot sends a Slack message with the parsed alarm to a single engineer of your team.

3. Your team

A member of your team now has to acknowledge the alert. marbot escalates unnoticed alerts to another team member or the whole crew if necessary. Once acknowledged, marbot waits until you have fixed the issue.
