Process data locally with AWS IoT SiteWise - AWS IoT SiteWise

Process data locally with AWS IoT SiteWise

Processing at the edge is in preview release for AWS IoT SiteWise and is subject to change. We recommend that you use this feature only with test data, and not in production environments.

While the edge processing feature is in preview, you must download the edge processing preview AWS SDK and AWS CLI to use the API operations for this feature. These API operations aren't available in the public AWS SDK or AWS CLI. For more information, see Edge processing preview AWS CLI and AWS SDKs.

You can use AWS IoT SiteWise to collect, organize, process, and monitor equipment data locally. You can use AWS IoT SiteWise so that you can use asset models and SiteWise Monitor on your local data. You can process your data locally and send it to AWS IoT SiteWise, or load it into on-premise applications by using AWS IoT SiteWise API operations.

Because you can use AWS IoT SiteWise to process and route your data locally, you can choose to send only aggregated data to the AWS Cloud. Use this feature to optimize your bandwidth usage and cloud storage costs.


AWS IoT SiteWise retains your edge data on your gateways up to 7 days. The retention of your data is dependent on your device and the available disk space.
