Monitoring the Data API

Monitoring is an important part of maintaining the reliability, availability, and performance of the Data API and your other Amazon solutions. Amazon provides the following monitoring tools to watch the Data API, report when something is wrong, and take automatic actions when appropriate:

  • Amazon EventBridge can be used to automate your Amazon services and respond automatically to system events, such as application availability issues or resource changes. Events from Amazon services are delivered to EventBridge in near-real time. You can write simple rules to indicate which events are of interest to you and which automated actions to take when an event matches a rule. For more information, see the Amazon EventBridge User Guide.

  • Amazon CloudTrail captures API calls and related events made by or on behalf of your Amazon account and delivers the log files to an Amazon S3 bucket that you specify. You can identify which users and accounts called Amazon, the source IP address from which the calls were made, and when the calls occurred. To learn more about how Amazon Redshift is integrated with Amazon CloudTrail, see Logging with CloudTrail. For more information about CloudTrail, see the Amazon CloudTrail User Guide.
