Monitoring: AWS Health

AWS Health is a service offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) that provides centralized visibility into the health of AWS resources and services. It provides real-time notifications about events that affect the performance, stability, and security of AWS resources and recommended actions to help address those events.

Why should you monitor AWS Health notifications?

AWS sends notifications about outages or planned changes. For example, AWS Health informs about outages of the EC2 service in eu-west-1 that requires you to replace failed instances. Or, AWS Health informs about enabling block public access for all new S3 buckets or similar breaking changes. Therefore, it is crucial to watch the AWS Health notifications closely.
