Writes a single data record into an Amazon Kinesis Firehose delivery stream. To write multiple data records into a delivery stream, use PutRecordBatch. Applications using these operations are referred to as producers.

By default, each delivery stream can take in up to 2,000 transactions per second, 5,000 records per second, or 5 MB per second. Note that if you use PutRecord and PutRecordBatch, the limits are an aggregate across these two operations for each delivery stream. For more information about limits and how to request an increase, see Amazon Kinesis Firehose Limits.

You must specify the name of the delivery stream and the data record when using PutRecord. The data record consists of a data blob that can be up to 1,000 KB in size, and any kind of data, for example, a segment from a log file, geographic location data, website clickstream data, and so on.

Kinesis Firehose buffers records before delivering them to the destination. To disambiguate the data blobs at the destination, a common solution is to use delimiters in the data, such as a newline (\n) or some other character unique within the data. This allows the consumer application to parse individual data items when reading the data from the destination.

The PutRecord operation returns a RecordId, which is a unique string assigned to each record. Producer applications can use this ID for purposes such as auditability and investigation.

If the PutRecord operation throws a ServiceUnavailableException, back off and retry. If the exception persists, it is possible that the throughput limits have been exceeded for the delivery stream.

Data records sent to Kinesis Firehose are stored for 24 hours from the time they are added to a delivery stream as it attempts to send the records to the destination. If the destination is unreachable for more than 24 hours, the data is no longer available.

Note:

This is an asynchronous operation using the standard naming convention for .NET 4.5 or higher. For .NET 3.5 the operation is implemented as a pair of methods using the standard naming convention of BeginPutRecord and EndPutRecord. For Unity the operation does not take CancellationToken as a parameter, and instead takes AmazonServiceCallback<PutRecordRequest, PutRecordResponse> and AsyncOptions as additional parameters.

Namespace: Amazon.KinesisFirehose
Assembly: AWSSDK.KinesisFirehose.dll
Version: 3.x.y.z

Syntax

C#
public virtual Task<PutRecordResponse> PutRecordAsync(
         String deliveryStreamName,
         Record record,
         CancellationToken cancellationToken
)
Parameters
deliveryStreamName
Type: System.String

The name of the delivery stream.

record
Type: Amazon.KinesisFirehose.Model.Record

The record.

cancellationToken
Type: System.Threading.CancellationToken

A cancellation token that can be used by other objects or threads to receive notice of cancellation.

Return Value
The response from the PutRecord service method, as returned by KinesisFirehose.

Exceptions

ExceptionCondition
InvalidArgumentException The specified input parameter has a value that is not valid.
ResourceNotFoundException The specified resource could not be found.
ServiceUnavailableException The service is unavailable, back off and retry the operation. If you continue to see the exception, throughput limits for the delivery stream may have been exceeded. For more information about limits and how to request an increase, see Amazon Kinesis Firehose Limits.
