AWS Status Page – Enhancements
In a previous post, I deployed a basic AWS status page. The tool I deployed lambstatus supports pulling metrics from AWS Cloudwatch and displaying them. As part of my personal development, I thought I would include this on my status page.
I managed to get this working as can be seen here. This is a lambda function running once a minute polling this website and adding the response time into AWS Cloudwatch which Lambstatus is allowed to call. It has been running without a hitch for nearly a month now at effectivly zero cost
The guide I followed is very good and is documented in the Git repo here
