ControlCondition - Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).


A control condition is an alarm that you specify for a practice run. When you configure practice runs with zonal autoshift for a resource, you specify Amazon CloudWatch alarms, which you create in CloudWatch to use with the practice run. The alarms that you specify are an outcome alarm, to monitor application health during practice runs and, optionally, a blocking alarm, to block practice runs from starting or to interrupt a practice run in progress.

Control condition alarms do not apply for autoshifts.

For more information, see Considerations when you configure zonal autoshift in the Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller Developer Guide.
