Our platform is built to find these categories of events

Calendar Events


Calendar events can always be planned for, because there is a known date associated with them.

Calendar Events

Examples

  • SSL certificate expiring in ACM
  • Route53 domain is set to expire
  • EC2’s scheduled events

Outlier Events


Outlier events are generated from metrics that don’t match your normal usage by hour, day, and week.

Outlier Events

Examples

  • Cloudfront data transferred
  • System, Steal, and IOWait CPU Usage
  • Average queue length in EBS

Hard Limit Events


Hard limits can be high (100% full) or low (0 memory), but can always be projected and anticipated.

Hard Limit Events

Examples

  • Disk space full
  • Kubernetes number of pods
  • EC2 CPU Credits

Static Threshold Events


Static thresholds measure a known bad state in your infrastructure, regardless of use case.

Static Threshold Events

Examples

  • High normalized load
  • RDS low memory
  • ELB percent of 5xx errors

System Status Events


System status events track known bad states, similar to static thresholds, but don’t have an associated metric.

System Status Events

Examples

  • Time drift on servers (NTP)
  • ELB no healthy hosts
  • EBS volume status

Config Events


Config events happen when configuration doesn’t match the recommended values.

Config Events

Examples

  • SQS max receives
  • SES Domain DKIM not configured correctly
  • Kubernetes pods with invalid image

Pre-configured dashboard


Our pre-built dashboard gives you an instant view of the health status of all your AWS services, out-of-the-box. Great for having on a TV in the office.

Alerts, Warnings, Anomalies


Blue Matador has three notification urgencies: Alerts, Warnings, Anomalies. This hierarchy of notifications reduces alert fatigue by only alerting you to critical issues that need manual intervention now.

System-Wide Timeline View


All of the events in your environment are organized into one timeline. In minutes, you can see all the outliers in your system and identify leads for root cause analysis.
