Amazon EventBridge is a serverless event bus that connects applications together by using data from the following:

  • Your applications.
  • Integrated Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications.
  • AWS services.

EventBridge delivers a stream of real-time data from event sources and routes that data to targets like AWS Lambda.

  • Routing rule are setup to specify where the data is sent. This data is used to build application architectures that react in real-time to all of your data sources.
  • EventBridge takes care of event ingestion and delivery, security, authorization, and error handling.

Use the OpsRamp AWS public cloud integration to discover and collect metrics against the AWS service.

Setup

To set up the OpsRamp AWS integration and discover the AWS service, go to AWS Integration Discovery Profile and select EventBridge Bus.

Metrics

OpsRamp MetricMetric Display NameUnitAggregation Type
aws_events_DeadLetterInvocations

Measures the number of times a rules target is not invoked in response to an event. This includes invocations that would result in triggering the same rule again, causing an infinite loop.
DeadLetterInvocationsCountAverage
aws_events_Invocations

Measures the number of times a target is invoked for a rule in response to an event. This includes successful and failed invocations, but does not include throttled or retried attempts until they fail permanently. It does not include DeadLetterInvocations.
InvocationsCountAverage
aws_events_FailedInvocations

Measures the number of invocations that failed permanently. This does not include invocations that are retried, or that succeeded after a retry attempt. It also does not count failed invocations that are counted in DeadLetterInvocations.
FailedInvocationsCountAverage
aws_events_TriggeredRules

Measures the number of triggered rules that matched with any event.
TriggeredRulesCountAverage
aws_events_ThrottledRules

Measures the number of triggered rules that are being throttled.
ThrottledRulesCountAverage
