Amazon Redshift Events


Amazon Redshift tracks events and retains information about them for a period of several weeks in your AWS account. For each event, Amazon Redshift reports information such as the date the event occurred, a description, the event source (for example, a cluster, a parameter group, or a snapshot), and the source ID.

You can use the Amazon Redshift console, the Amazon Redshift API, or the AWS SDKs to obtain event information. You can obtain a list of all events, or you can apply filters—such as event duration or start and end date—to obtain events information for a specific period. You can also obtain events that were generated by a specific source type, such as cluster events or parameter group events.

You can create Amazon Redshift event notification subscriptions that specify a set of event filters. When an event occurs that matches the filter criteria, Amazon Redshift uses Amazon Simple Notification Service to actively inform you that the event has occurred.
