Once you’ve integrated with AWS CloudWatch, you have access to all metrics for Global Accelerator, which sends data about your accelerators to Amazon CloudWatch, where it is stored as metrics.

See all available AWS integrations.

To verify metrics are reporting, search for the metrics on the Metric details page in Project settings.

The following table shows the Global Accelerator metrics ingested by Lightstep.

aws.globalaccelerator.flows_dropped_no_endpoint_found count The total number of TCP IPv6 packet flows that were dropped due to a lack of IPv6 endpoints.
aws.globalaccelerator.healthy_endpoint_count count The total number of endpoints considered to be healthy.
aws.globalaccelerator.new_flow_count count The total number of new TCP and UDP flows (or connections) established in the time period from clients to endpoints.
aws.globalaccelerator.processed_bytes_in bytes The sum of all incoming bytes processed by the accelerator, including TCP/IP headers.
aws.globalaccelerator.processed_bytes_out bytes Total number of bytes transmitted by the accelerator, including TCP/IP headers.
aws.globalaccelerator.unhealthy_endpoint_count count The total number of endpoints that have been classified as unhealthy.
