AWS DynamoDB: Read Capacity
This check monitors the read capacity of DynamoDB tables based on the
Cloudwatch metric "ConsumedReadCapacityUnits". It reports both the
average consumption as well as the minimum and maximum consumption of
individual requests. The check also computes the average usage in
percent based on a limit value on the average consumption. For
provisioned tables, this limit value can be fetched from the API. For
on-demand tables, you have to configure a limit value yourself,
otherwise, the average usage will not be computed.
Upper and lower levels for this check can be configured using the
rule "AWS/DynamoDB Read/Write Capacity". By default, there are upper
levels on the average usage at 80/90%.
To make this check work, you have to configure the related special
Amazon Web Services (AWS).
One service is created.
