This check monitors the

- surge queue length

- spill over count

of AWS/ELB services.

To make this check work you have to configure the related special agent {Amazon Web Services (AWS)}.

When the surge queue length reaches the maximum of 1,024 queued request, the spillover is incremented and new requests are dropped. The service goes to CRIT in this case

Otherwise the service is OK.

Levels are configurable for surge queue length and spillover.


One service is created if all required metrics (SurgeQueueLength, SpilloverCount) are given.
