Once you’ve integrated with AWS CloudWatch, you have access to metrics from AWS Gateway Load Balancer, which distributes your incoming traffic between a number of targets in one or more availability zones.

See this table for all available AWS integrations.

You can validate that metrics are reporting to Lightstep on the Metrics details page in Project settings.

The following table shows the Gateway Load Balancer metrics ingested by Lightstep.

Metric Name Unit Description
aws.gatewayelb.active_flow_count count The total number of connections or flows between clients and targets.
aws.gatewayelb.consumed_lcus gauge The number of LCUs (load balancer capacity units) that your load balancer uses.
aws.gatewayelb.healthy_host_count count The number of targets that are deemed healthy.
aws.gatewayelb.new_flow_count count The total number of new connections or flows made in that time from clients to targets.
aws.gatewayelb.processed_bytes bytes The total amount of bytes that the load balancer has processed.
aws.gatewayelb.un_healthy_host_count count The number of targets that are deemed unhealthy.
