AWS Status Page – Monitoring Included

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
