Amazon EventBridge is a serverless event bus that connects applications together by using data from the following:

  • Your applications.
  • Integrated Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications.
  • AWS services.

EventBridge delivers a stream of real-time data from event sources and routes that data to targets like AWS Lambda.

  • Routing rule are setup to specify where the data is sent. This data is used to build application architectures that react in real-time to all of your data sources.
  • EventBridge takes care of event ingestion and delivery, security, authorization, and error handling.


To set up the OpsRamp AWS integration and discover the AWS service, go to AWS Integration Discovery Profile and select EventBridge Bus.


OpsRamp MetricMetric Display NameUnitAggregation TypeDescription
aws_events_DeadLetterInvocationsDeadLetterInvocationsCountAverageMeasures the number of times a rules target is not invoked in response to an event. This includes invocations that would result in triggering the same rule again, causing an infinite loop.
aws_events_InvocationsInvocationsCountAverageMeasures the number of times a target is invoked for a rule in response to an event. This includes successful and failed invocations, but does not include throttled or retried attempts until they fail permanently. It does not include DeadLetterInvocations.
aws_events_FailedInvocationsFailedInvocationsCountAverageMeasures the number of invocations that failed permanently. This does not include invocations that are retried, or that succeeded after a retry attempt. It also does not count failed invocations that are counted in DeadLetterInvocations.
aws_events_TriggeredRulesTriggeredRulesCountAverageMeasures the number of triggered rules that matched with any event.
aws_events_ThrottledRulesThrottledRulesCountAverageMeasures the number of triggered rules that are being throttled.
