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 Open XDR monitors events from Amazon SQS by parsing the AWS CloudTrail logs and triggers from Amazon Event Bridge. Dashboards and reports in Netsurion Open XDR 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 Open XDR using the Netsurion integrator AWS Lambda function, which will in turn deliver logs to Netsurion Open XDR from Amazon Web Services. For an already-integrated AWS instance, make sure to update to AWS Log Forwarder to v1.0.10 or above.

The following are the key Data Source Integration available in Netsurion Open XDR.
