Monitoring: Amazon Athena

Amazon Athena is an interactive query service provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS) that enables users to analyze data stored in Amazon S3 using standard SQL queries. With Athena, users can easily query and analyze data without setting up and managing complex ETL processes, data warehouses, or other data processing infrastructure. Athena is serverless, meaning that AWS takes care of the underlying infrastructure, and users only pay for the queries they run.

Why should you monitor Amazon Athena?

Monitoring Amazon Athena is crucial to receive timely notifications about failed queries. This helps prevent issues with data integration, visualization dashboards, and reports. When a query fails, it can cause problems downstream, resulting in inaccurate or incomplete data being fed into other systems. By monitoring Athena and getting notified about failed queries immediately, teams can quickly identify and resolve issues, preventing problems from cascading further downstream.
