Incident detection, optimization and best practice insights for API Gateway.
API Gateway high error percentage
Check for detecting high error rates in your API Gateway endpoints. Some errors are inevitable and should be handled from the application side.
API Gateway high latency
A monitor for increased latency in API Gateway resources.
API Gateway is nearing timeout
Monitors the latency of top 5% slowest API Gateway requests and raises an alarm when they take longer than 25 seconds to execute.
API Gateway stage is abandoned
Checks if an API Gateway Stage resource has seen any activity during the past 5 days. If not, the resource is could be abandoned and might no longer be necessary.
API Gateway logging is not enabled
Checks if an API Gateway stage resource has either ERROR or INFO level logging enabled.
API Gateway X-ray tracing not enabled
AWS X-ray tracing provides you with an end-to-end view of an HTTP request. This helps you understand the latency and details of API requests and workings of downstream services.
API Gateway encoding not enabled
Checks if the content encoding feature is enabled for API Gateway stages to compress API payloads.
API Gateway detailed monitoring not enabled
Checks if detailed CloudWatch metrics are enabled for your API Gateway stages. The detailed CloudWatch metrics help you to get a more granular understanding of your API latency, errors and caching.
