test-alarm

Description

Tests an alarm by displaying a banner on the Amazon Lightsail console. If a notification trigger is configured for the specified alarm, the test also sends a notification to the notification protocol (Email and/or SMS ) configured for the alarm.

An alarm is used to monitor a single metric for one of your resources. When a metric condition is met, the alarm can notify you by email, SMS text message, and a banner displayed on the Amazon Lightsail console. For more information, see Alarms in Amazon Lightsail .

Synopsis

  test-alarm
--alarm-name <value>
--state <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--alarm-name (string)

The name of the alarm to test.

--state (string)

The alarm state to test.

An alarm has the following possible states that can be tested:

  • ALARM - The metric is outside of the defined threshold.
  • INSUFFICIENT_DATA - The alarm has just started, the metric is not available, or not enough data is available for the metric to determine the alarm state.
  • OK - The metric is within the defined threshold.

Possible values:

  • OK
  • ALARM
  • INSUFFICIENT_DATA

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
