Amazon CloudTrail announces CloudTrail error rate Insights, a new feature of CloudTrail Insights that enables customers to identify unusual activity in their Amazon Web Services account based on API error codes and their rate.
Error rate Insights work by building a baseline statistical model of normal operating patterns for an API. By comparing actual error rates to the model, it can notify customers of error rate spikes so that customers can take remedial actions, such as updating permissions or raising resource limits.
Error rate Insights work without customers having to configure thresholds or understand advanced statistical techniques. By giving customers the ability to identify issues before they impact end users, error rate Insights continue to build on CloudTrail Insights' log analytics capabilities.
You can enable error rate Insights across your Amazon organization or in individual accounts with a few clicks from within the CloudTrail console. You can also enable error rate Insights from the Amazon CLI. CloudTrail error rate Insights is now available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. To get started with CloudTrail Insights, see our documentation.
