class aws_cdk.aws_cloudwatch.CreateAlarmOptions(*, evaluation_periods, threshold, actions_enabled=None, alarm_description=None, alarm_name=None, comparison_operator=None, datapoints_to_alarm=None, evaluate_low_sample_count_percentile=None, period=None, statistic=None, treat_missing_data=None)

Bases: object

Properties needed to make an alarm from a metric.

Parameters
  • evaluation_periods (Union[int, float]) – The number of periods over which data is compared to the specified threshold.

  • threshold (Union[int, float]) – The value against which the specified statistic is compared.

  • actions_enabled (Optional[bool]) – Whether the actions for this alarm are enabled. Default: true

  • alarm_description (Optional[str]) – Description for the alarm. Default: No description

  • alarm_name (Optional[str]) – Name of the alarm. Default: Automatically generated name

  • comparison_operator (Optional[ComparisonOperator]) – Comparison to use to check if metric is breaching. Default: GreaterThanOrEqualToThreshold

  • datapoints_to_alarm (Union[int, float, None]) – The number of datapoints that must be breaching to trigger the alarm. This is used only if you are setting an “M out of N” alarm. In that case, this value is the M. For more information, see Evaluating an Alarm in the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide. Default: evaluationPeriods

  • evaluate_low_sample_count_percentile (Optional[str]) – Specifies whether to evaluate the data and potentially change the alarm state if there are too few data points to be statistically significant. Used only for alarms that are based on percentiles. Default: - Not configured.

  • period (Optional[Duration]) – (deprecated) The period over which the specified statistic is applied. Cannot be used with MathExpression objects. Default: - The period from the metric

  • statistic (Optional[str]) – (deprecated) What function to use for aggregating. Can be one of the following: - “Minimum” | “min” - “Maximum” | “max” - “Average” | “avg” - “Sum” | “sum” - “SampleCount | “n” - “pNN.NN” Cannot be used with MathExpression objects. Default: - The statistic from the metric

  • treat_missing_data (Optional[TreatMissingData]) – Sets how this alarm is to handle missing data points. Default: TreatMissingData.Missing
