AWS Elemental MediaPackage Live Content Metrics

The AWS/MediaPackage namespace includes the following metrics for live content. AWS Elemental MediaPackage publishes metrics to CloudWatch every minute, if not sooner.

Metric Description
ActiveInput

Indicates if an input has been used as the source for an endpoint in AWS Elemental MediaPackage (it has been active). A value of 1 indicates that the input was active, and a 0 (zero) indicates that it wasn't.

Units: None

Valid dimension:

  • Combination of IngestEndpoint and OriginEndpoint

EgressBytes

Number of bytes that AWS Elemental MediaPackage successfully sends for each request. If MediaPackage doesn't receive any requests for output in the specified interval, then no data is given.

Units: Bytes

Valid statistics:

  • Average – average bytes (Sum/SampleCount) that AWS Elemental MediaPackage outputs over the configured interval.

  • Maximum – largest individual output request (in bytes) made to AWS Elemental MediaPackage.

  • Minimum – smallest individual output request (in bytes) made to AWS Elemental MediaPackage.

  • SampleCount – number of requests that is used in the statistical calculation.

  • Sum – total number of bytes that AWS Elemental MediaPackage outputs over the configured interval.

Valid dimensions:

  • Channel

  • Combination of Channel and OriginEndpoint

  • PackagingConfiguration

  • No dimension

EgressRequestCount

Number of content requests that AWS Elemental MediaPackage receives. If MediaPackage doesn't receive any requests for output in the specified interval, then no data is given.

Units: Count

Valid statistics:

  • Sum – total number of output requests that AWS Elemental MediaPackage receives.

Valid dimensions:

  • Channel

  • Combination of Channel and OriginEndpoint

  • StatusCodeRange

  • Combination of Channel and StatusCodeRange

  • Combination of Channel, OriginEndpoint, and StatusCodeRange

  • PackagingConfiguration

  • Combination of PackagingConfiguration and StatusCodeRange

  • No dimension

EgressResponseTime

The time that it takes AWS Elemental MediaPackage to process each output request. If MediaPackage doesn't receive any requests for output in the specified interval, then no data is given.

Units: Milliseconds

Valid statistics:

  • Average – average amount of time (Sum/SampleCount) that it takes AWS Elemental MediaPackage to process output requests over the configured interval.

  • Maximum – longest amount of time (in milliseconds) that it takes AWS Elemental MediaPackage to process an output request and provide a response.

  • Minimum – shortest amount of time (in milliseconds) that it takes AWS Elemental MediaPackage to process an output request and provide a response.

  • SampleCount – number of requests that is used in the statistical calculation.

  • Sum – total amount of time that it takes AWS Elemental MediaPackage to process output requests over the configured interval.

Valid dimensions:

  • Channel

  • Combination of Channel and OriginEndpoint

  • PackagingConfiguration

IngressBytes

Number of bytes of content that AWS Elemental MediaPackage receives for each input request. If MediaPackage doesn't receive any requests for input in the specified interval, then no data is given.

Units: Bytes

Valid statistics:

  • Average – average bytes (Sum/SampleCount) that AWS Elemental MediaPackage receives over the configured interval.

  • Maximum – largest individual input request (in bytes) made to AWS Elemental MediaPackage.

  • Minimum – smallest individual input request (in bytes) made to AWS Elemental MediaPackage.

  • SampleCount – number of requests that is used in the statistical calculation.

AWS Elemental MediaPackage Live Dimensions

You can filter the AWS/MediaPackage data using the following dimensions.

Dimension Description

No Dimension

Metrics are aggregated and shown for all channels, endpoints, or status codes.

Channel

Metrics are shown only for the specified channel.

Value: The autogenerated GUID of the channel.

Can be used alone or with other dimensions:

  • Alone to show metrics for only the specified channel.

  • With the originEndpoint dimension to show metrics for the specified endpoint that is associated with the specified channel.

IngestEndpoint

Metrics are shown only for the specified ingest endpoint on a channel.

Value: The autogenerated GUID of the ingest endpoint.

Can be used with the following dimensions:

  • With the channel dimension to show metrics for the specified ingest endpoint that is associated with the specified channel.

  • With the originEndpoint dimension to show metrics for the specified ingest endpoint that is associated with the specified endpoint.

OriginEndpoint

Metrics are shown for the specified channel and endpoint combination.

Value: The autogenerated GUID of the endpoint.

Must be used with the channel dimension.

StatusCodeRange

Metrics are shown for the specified status code range.

Value: 2xx, 3xx, 4xx, or 5xx.

Can be used alone or with other dimensions:

  • Alone to show all output requests for the specified status range.

  • With the channel dimension to show output requests for all endpoints that are associated with the specified channel, with the specified status code range.

  • With the channel and originEndpoint dimensions to show output requests with a specific status code range on the specified endpoint that is associated with the specified channel.
