Monitoring: Amazon SQS
Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS) is a fully managed message queuing service that makes it simple and cost-effective to decouple and scale distributed applications and microservices. It is a highly scalable fault tolerant and durable hosted queue without any single points of failure. You can access Amazon SQS through AWS SDK or AWS CLI from any programming language supported by them.
Why should you monitor Amazon SQS?
When it comes to monitoring Amazon SQS, it is important to keep a close eye on two specific metrics when monitoring your system: the age of the oldest messages in the queue and the length of the dead letter queue. These metrics are particularly important because they can potentially indicate serious issues with your system.
