Encapsulates the information sent to either create a metric or add new values to be aggregated into an existing metric.
Array of numbers that is used along with the
Values array. Each number in the
is the number of times the corresponding value in the
Values array occurred during the period.
If you omit the
Counts array, the default of 1 is used as the value for each count. If you
Counts array, it must include the same amount of values as the
The dimensions associated with the metric.
The name of the metric.
The statistical values for the metric.
Valid values are 1 and 60. Setting this to 1 specifies this metric as a high-resolution metric, so that CloudWatch stores the metric with sub-minute resolution down to one second. Setting this to 60 specifies this metric as a regular-resolution metric, which CloudWatch stores at 1-minute resolution. Currently, high resolution is available only for custom metrics. For more information about high-resolution metrics, see High-Resolution Metrics in the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide.
This field is optional, if you do not specify it the default of 60 is used.
The time the metric data was received, expressed as the number of milliseconds since Jan 1, 1970 00:00:00 UTC.
When you are using a
Put operation, this defines what unit you want to use when storing the metric.
Get operation, this displays the unit that is used for the metric.
The value for the metric.
Although the parameter accepts numbers of type Double, CloudWatch rejects values that are either too small or too large. Values must be in the range of -2^360 to 2^360. In addition, special values (for example, NaN, +Infinity, -Infinity) are not supported.
Array of numbers representing the values for the metric during the period. Each unique value is listed just once
in this array, and the corresponding number in the
Counts array specifies the number of times that value occurred during the period.
You can include up to 150 unique values in each
