Amazon Route 53 monitoring integration

Important

Enable the AWS CloudWatch Metric Streams integration to monitor all CloudWatch metrics from your AWS services, including custom namespaces. Individual integrations are no longer our recommended option.

New Relic infrastructure integrations include an integration for reporting your Amazon Route 53 data to New Relic. This document explains how to activate the integration and describes the data reported.

Features

Amazon Route 53 helps you register domain names, route Internet traffic to the appropriate resources, and check the health of your resources to make sure your web app is always up and running.

For AWS health-checks, Amazon Route 53 determines whether a resource record set is healthy based on one of the following criteria:

  • By periodically sending a request to the endpoint that is specified in the health check
  • By aggregating the status of a specified group of health checks (calculated health checks)
  • By determining the current state of a CloudWatch alarm (CloudWatch metric health checks)

Data reported to New Relic includes connection time, health checks, time to first byte, and other metrics. Route 53 data is available in pre-built dashboards and you can also create custom queries and charts.

Activate integration

To enable this integration follow standard procedures to Connect AWS services to New Relic.

Configuration and polling

You can change the polling frequency and filter data using configuration options.

Default polling information for the Amazon Route 53 integration:

  • New Relic polling interval: 5 minutes
  • Amazon CloudWatch data interval: 1 minute

Find and use data

To find your integration data, go to one.newrelic.com > Infrastructure > AWS and select one of the Route 53 integration links.

You can query and explore your data using the HealthCheckSample event type, with a provider value of Route53HealthCheck.

For more on how to use your data, see Understand integration data.

Metric data

New Relic Infrastructure Integrations supports the following Route 53 health check metrics. For more details on these metrics, see Amazon's Route 53 documentation.

Name

Description

ChildHealthCheckHealthyCount

For a calculated health check, the number of health checks that are healthy among the health checks that Amazon Route 53 is monitoring.

ConnectionTime

The average time, in milliseconds, that it took Amazon Route 53 health checkers to establish a TCP connection with the endpoint. You can view ConnectionTime for a health check either across all regions or for a selected geographic region.

HealthCheckPercentageHealthy

The percentage of Amazon Route 53 health checkers that consider the selected endpoint to be healthy. You can view HealthCheckPercentageHealthy only across all regions; data is not available for a selected region.

HealthCheckStatus

The status of the health check endpoint that CloudWatch is checking. 1 indicates healthy, and 0 indicates unhealthy. You can view HealthCheckStatus only across all regions; data is not available for a selected region.

SSLHandshakeTime

The average time, in milliseconds, that it took Amazon Route 53 health checkers to complete the SSL handshake. You can view SSLHandshakeTime for a health check either across all regions or for a selected geographic region.

TimeToFirstByte

The average time, in milliseconds, that it took Amazon Route 53 health checkers to receive the first byte of the response to an HTTP or HTTPS request. You can view TimeToFirstByte for a health check either across all regions or for a selected geographic region.
