Getting Started with AWS Incident Detection and Response

AWS Incident Detection and Response affords you the option to select specific workloads for monitoring and critical incident management. A workload is a collection of resources and code that work together to deliver a business value. Examples of a workload might be all the resources and code that make up your banking payment portal or a customer relationship management (CRM) system. A workload can be hosted in a single or multiple AWS accounts.

For example, a monolithic application can be hosted in a single account (for example, Employee Performance App in Fig.1) whereas another application (for example, Storefront Webapp in Fig. 1) broken into microservices may stretch across different accounts. A workload may also share resources such as a database with other applications/workloads as displayed in Fig. 1.

Note

To make changes to your runbooks, workload information, or the alarms monitored on AWS Incident Detection and Response, create an Workload change request.
