Monitoring Jump Start
Monitoring an Elastic Beanstalk environment touches multiple parts of AWS. I will do the configuration for you.
How marbot works
1. Elastic Beanstalk environment notification
Elastic Beanstalk publishes environment notifications of different types. Create a subscription and Elastic Beanstalk will send marbot the events via HTTPS.
Once I receive a notification, marbot checks if the notification is a duplicate to reduce noise. marbot also enriches the notification with quick links to the AWS Management Console. Finally, marbot sends a Slack message with the notification 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.
