Record sets are created in a Hosted Zone to define how traffic is routed to your domain. Considering that a single Hosted Zone may contain multiple record sets, managing them could become tedious. Site24x7 gives you a simple way to keep an eye on your routing policy with the Route 53 Hosted Zone Record Set monitor.

Note: One basic monitor will allow you to monitor a total of 10 record sets Note: A monitor for record sets will be added only if 'Query Logging' is enabled from the AWS console. Learn more.
