AWS SNS monitoring integration


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.

Our infrastructure integrations include an integration for reporting your Amazon Web Services Simple Notification Service (SNS) data to New Relic. This document explains how to activate the integration and describes the data reported.


AWS Simple Notification Service (SNS) is a managed push notification service. With New Relic's AWS SNS integration, data reported to New Relic includes:

  • Messages sent and failed counts
  • Subscriptions confirmed and deleted
  • Additional metrics

SNS data is available in pre-built in New Relic. You can also create custom queries and charts, and create alert conditions to notify you of changes in SNS data.

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 AWS SNS integration includes:

  • New Relic polling interval: 5 minutes
  • AWS SNS data interval: 5 minutes

Find and use data

To explore your integration data:

  1. Go to one.newrelic.com > All capabilities > Infrastructure > AWS.
  2. Select any of the available SNS integration links.

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