Monitoring AWS Kinesis
TABLE OF CONTENTS
Note: Learn about the other supported AWS services with our AWS documentation.
Kinesis Data Streams Instance Details
- Stream name
- Stream ARN
- Stream status
- Stream encryption type
- Stream retention period (hours)
- Stream creation time
- AWS Grouping Zone
Metrics for Kinesis are pulled every 5 minutes, this can be changed via agent configuration in
com.instana.plugin.aws.kinesis: cloudwatch_period: 300
To disable monitoring of Kinesis streams use the following configuration:
com.instana.plugin.aws.kinesis: enabled: false
Refer to the Monitoring multiple AWS accounts documentation to set up monitoring of multiple AWS accounts with one AWS agent in the same region.
To override which profiles should be used to monitor Kinesis, use the following configuration:
com.instana.plugin.aws.kinesis: profile_names: - 'profile2' - 'profile3'
Note: Defining profiles on service level will override the global AWS profiles configuration.
To override which IAM Roles should be used to monitor Kinesis, use the following configuration:
com.instana.plugin.aws.kinesis: role_arns: - 'arn:aws:iam::<account_1_id>:role/<role_1_name>' - 'arn:aws:iam::<account_2_id>:role/<role_2_name>'
Note: Defining IAM roles on service level will override the global AWS IAM roles configuration.
Multiple tags can be defined, separated by a comma. Tags should be provided as a key-value pair separated by :. In order to make configuration easier, it is possible to define which tags you want to include in discovery or exclude from discovery. In case of defining tag in both lists (include and exclude), exclude list has higher priority. If there is no need for services filtering, the configuration should not be defined. It’s not mandatory to define all values in order to enable filtering.
Users are able to specify how often sensors will poll the AWS tagged resources using the
tagged-services-poll-rate configuration property (default 300 seconds).
Note: Tags are only available in conjunction with the AWS Agent.
To define how often sensors will poll the tagged resources use following configuration:
com.instana.plugin.aws: tagged-services-poll-rate: 60 #default 300
To include services by tags into discovery use following configuration:
com.instana.plugin.aws.kinesis: include_tags: # Comma separated list of tags in key:value format (e.g. env:prod,env:staging)
To exclude services by tags from discovery use following configuration:
com.instana.plugin.aws.kinesis: exclude_tags: # Comma separated list of tags in key:value format (e.g. env:dev,env:test)
AWS services without tags will be monitored by default but can be excluded by setting the
include_untagged field to
com.instana.plugin.aws.kinesis: include_untagged: false # True value by default
