marbot checks if the
X-Alert-Key message attribute is present. Incoming events with the same
X-Alert-Key value result in a single alert.
Otherwise, marbot looks at the payload:
- If the message originates from an AWS services, marbot uses AWS context knowledge to aggregate incoming events.
- If only one field is transmitted, marbot aggregates incoming events with the same field value.
- If more than one field is transmitted, marbot aggregates incoming events with the same field keys.
marbot might not be reachable (request timeout, connection error) or might respond with HTTP status codes of 500-599. In all those cases, SNS retries message delivery to marbot until marbot response with HTTP status code 204.
To avoid alert duplicates in the case of retries, marbot uses the
MessageId on SNS messages for uniqueness. Each message id can only be used once every ~24 hours.
