Container for the parameters to the CreateStream operation. Creates an Amazon Kinesis stream. A stream captures and transports data records that are continuously emitted from different data sources or producers. Scale-out within a stream is explicitly supported by means of shards, which are uniquely identified groups of data records in a stream.
You specify and control the number of shards that a stream is composed of. Each shard can support reads up to 5 transactions per second, up to a maximum data read total of 2 MB per second. Each shard can support writes up to 1,000 records per second, up to a maximum data write total of 1 MB per second. You can add shards to a stream if the amount of data input increases and you can remove shards if the amount of data input decreases.
The stream name identifies the stream. The name is scoped to the AWS account used by the application. It is also scoped by region. That is, two streams in two different accounts can have the same name, and two streams in the same account, but in two different regions, can have the same name.
CreateStream is an asynchronous operation. Upon receiving a
request, Amazon Kinesis immediately returns and sets the stream status to
After the stream is created, Amazon Kinesis sets the stream status to
You should perform read and write operations only on an
You receive a
LimitExceededException when making a
request if you try to do one of the following:
Have more than five streams in the
CREATING state at any point in time.
Create more shards than are authorized for your account.
You can use
DescribeStream to check the stream status, which is returned
CreateStream has a limit of 5 transactions per second per account.
public class CreateStreamRequest : AmazonKinesisRequest IAmazonWebServiceRequest
The CreateStreamRequest type exposes the following members
Gets and sets the property ShardCount.
The number of shards that the stream will use. The throughput of the stream is a function of the number of shards; more shards are required for greater provisioned throughput.
Gets and sets the property StreamName.
A name to identify the stream. The stream name is scoped to the AWS account used by the application that creates the stream. It is also scoped by region. That is, two streams in two different AWS accounts can have the same name, and two streams in the same AWS account but in two different regions can have the same name.
