Amazon SNS Monitoring Integration

Amazon SNS is a fully managed Pub/Sub messaging service that makes it easy to send notifications from the cloud. With Site24x7's AWS SNS integration you can collect and monitor performance and usage stats for your active SNS topics to identify abnormal behavior.

Setup and configuration

  • If you haven't done it already, please enable Site24x7 access to your AWS resources by creating Site24x7 as an IAM user or by creating a cross-account IAM role between you AWS account and Site24x7's AWS account. Learn more.
  • Next, in the Integrate AWS Account page, please make sure the SNS Topic check box under the Services to be discovered field is selected. Learn more.

Policies and Permissions

Please make sure the following read level actions are present in the policy assigned to the Site24x7 IAM entity. Learn more.

Polling frequency

Site24x7 queries the CloudWatch API and other service level APIs as per the poll frequency set (1 minute to a day), to collect performance metrics and metadata for your active SNS topics. Learn more.

IT Automations

You can add automations for the AWS services supported by Site24x7. Log in to Site24x7 and go to Admin > IT Automation Templates (+) > Add Automation Templates. Once automations are added, you can schedule them to be executed one after the other.

You can now publish messages to a SNS topic using Amazon SNS automations.
