Why monitor AWS DynamoDB?

Amazon DynamoDB is a powerful NoSQL database service that provides fast and predictable performance with seamless scalability. Monitoring AWS DynamoDB is essential to optimize resource usage and to improve application performance. If the system and user errors are left unchecked, it can lead to degradation of the application's performance. Any server or network unavailability and high response time can cause server outages. Any issues with replication, and unavailability of replication regions for a long time can eventually lead to loss of vital data impacting mission-critical business operations. Inappropriate provisioning of resources such as Read Capacity Units and Write capacity Units can be the reason for read and write throttling, which can lead to throttled requests, transaction conflicts, and conditional check failed requests. Hence, it is very important to keep vigil on the availability, responsiveness, replication, and resource provisioning of the target AWS DynamoDB server. To help administrators in this mission, eG Enterprise provides a specialized AWS DynamoDB monitoring model using which administrators can keep a constant check on the availability and overall performance of the server.
