AWS service specific API rate limiting


After enabling Amazon integrations with New Relic infrastructure monitoring, you encounter a rate limit for service-specific APIs. You might see this message in your AWS monitoring software, often with a 503 error:

AWS::EC2::Errors::RequestLimitExceeded Request limit exceeded.


For assistance determining which services may cause an increase in billing, get support at support.newrelic.com, or contact your New Relic account representative.


Infrastructure Amazon integrations leverage the AWS monitoring APIs to gather inventory data. AWS imposes hard rate limits on many of the AWS service-specific APIs consumed by New Relic integrations. Adding New Relic Amazon integrations will increase usage of the service-specific APIs and could impact how quickly you reach your rate limit.

This may be caused by either of the following:

  • Enabling Amazon integrations on several plugins for the same service
  • Adding the incorrect Role ARN to your AWS integrations
