AWS S3 CloudWatch Opspack Overview
Amazon Simple Storage Service is storage for the Internet. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers. Amazon S3 has a simple web services interface that you can use to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. It gives any developer access to the same highly scalable, reliable, fast, inexpensive data storage infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of web sites. The service aims to maximize benefits of scale and to pass those benefits on to developers.
What You Can Monitor
Opsview Monitor's AWS S3 Opspack provides all of the latest metrics to track your S3 buckets. Service checks included in the Opspack allow for tracking of GET and PUT requests across each bucket. S3 Request metrics can help you easily identify operational issues.
Note: This Opspack knows when it was last run, so when testing the results in the troubleshoot section, you will need to wait a couple of minutes each time you recheck the results. The time frame that is searched for is based around the last time the Opspack ran, so running it too quickly will result in no data being found and the service check going into an unknown.
