Appendix D: Log Files

The AWS Ops Automator creates a log group that contains the default AWS Lambda log files and a log group that contains the following log files:

  • AutomatorMain-yyyymmdd - Logs the output from the Lambda function that handled the event.

  • ScheduleHandler-yyyymmdd - Logs the output from Lambda functions that handle time-based tasks.

  • TaskTrackingHandler-yyyymmdd - Logs the output from Lambda functions that handle event-based tasks.

  • SelectResourcesHandler-<taskname>-yyyymmdd - Logs the output from the Lambda function that selects resources for task execution.

  • <Taskname>-yymmddhhmm-<unique task id> - Logs the output of the Lambda function that executes the action. The unique task ID correspondents to the unique id for each executed task in the task tracking Amazon DynamoDB table.

  • CompletionHandler-yyyymmdd - Logs the output from the Lambda function that checks whether the action completed.

Messages

This solution also logs error, warning, and debugging messages. Each message has the format: yyyy-mm-dd – hh:mm:ss.mmm - <type> - <text>. The type can have the value INFO for informational messages, DEBUG for detailed debugging messages, WARNING for warning messages, or ERROR for error messages.

Warning and error messages are sent to an email address using Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS). The Amazon SNS topic is located in the AWS Ops Automator stack output named IssueSNSTopic.
