How Do I Use AWS IoT Metrics?

The metrics reported by AWS IoT provide information that you can analyze in different ways. The following use cases are based on a scenario where you have ten things that connect to the internet once a day. Each day:

  • Ten things connect to AWS IoT at roughly the same time.

  • Each thing subscribes to a topic filter, and then waits for an hour before disconnecting. During this period, things communicate with one another and learn more about the state of the world.

  • Each thing publishes some perception it has based on its newly found data using UpdateThingShadow.

  • Each thing disconnects from AWS IoT.

These are suggestions to get you started, not a comprehensive list.
