Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS)

Version: AWS Log Forwarder v1.0.10 and above.

Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) is a reliable, highly scalable hosted queue for storing messages as they travel between applications or microservices. Amazon SQS moves data between distributed application components and helps you decouple these components.

Netsurion monitors events from Amazon SQS by parsing the AWS CloudTrail logs and triggers from Amazon Event Bridge. Dashboards and reports in Netsurion allow you to monitor overall actions related to the Amazon SQS service to keep you informed about its activities. It will trigger alerts whenever an action that is critical to the service is carried out.

For a new instance, integrate the AWS instance to Netsurion using the Netsurion integrator AWS Lambda function, which will in turn deliver logs to Netsurion from Amazon Web Services. For an already-integrated AWS instance, make sure to update to AWS Log Forwarder to v1.0.10 or above.

Once configured to deliver events to Netsurion Manager, the alerts, dashboards, and reports can be configured into Netsurion.

Some of the Data Source Integrations available in Netsurion are listed below.
