Working with Amazon CloudWatch Alarms with AWS SDK for PHP version 3

An Amazon CloudWatch alarm watches a single metric over a time period you specify. It performs one or more actions based on the value of the metric relative to a given threshold over a number of time periods.

The following examples show how to:

All the example code for the AWS SDK for PHP is available here on GitHub.

Credentials

Before running the example code, configure your AWS credentials. See Credentials for the AWS SDK for PHP version 3.

Describe Alarms

Imports

require 'vendor/autoload.php'; use Aws\CloudWatch\CloudWatchClient; use Aws\Exception\AwsException;

Sample Code

$client = new CloudWatchClient([ 'profile' => 'default', 'region' => 'us-west-2', 'version' => '2010-08-01' ]); try { $result = $client->describeAlarms([ ]); foreach ($result['MetricAlarms'] as $alarm) { echo $alarm['AlarmName'] . "\n"; } } catch (AwsException $e) { // output error message if fails error_log($e->getMessage()); }

Create an Alarm

Imports

require 'vendor/autoload.php'; use Aws\CloudWatch\CloudWatchClient; use Aws\Exception\AwsException;

Sample Code

$client = new CloudWatchClient([ 'profile' => 'default', 'region' => 'us-west-2', 'version' => '2010-08-01' ]); try { $result = $client->putMetricAlarm(array( // AlarmName is required 'AlarmName' => 'string', // MetricName is required 'MetricName' => 'string', // Namespace is required 'Namespace' => 'string', // Statistic is required //string: SampleCount | Average | Sum | Minimum | Maximum 'Statistic' => 'string', // Period is required 'Period' => integer, 'Unit' => 'Count/Second', // EvaluationPeriods is required 'EvaluationPeriods' => integer, // Threshold is required 'Threshold' => interger, // ComparisonOperator is required // string: GreaterThanOrEqualToThreshold | GreaterThanThreshold | LessThanThreshold | LessThanOrEqualToThreshold 'ComparisonOperator' => 'string', )); var_dump($result); } catch (AwsException $e) { // output error message if fails error_log($e->getMessage()); }

Delete Alarms

Imports

require 'vendor/autoload.php'; use Aws\CloudWatch\CloudWatchClient; use Aws\Exception\AwsException;

Sample Code

$alarmName = "<ALARM_NAME>"; $client = new CloudWatchClient([ 'profile' => 'default', 'region' => 'us-west-2', 'version' => '2010-08-01' ]); try { $result = $client->deleteAlarms([ 'AlarmNames' => [$alarmName] // REQUIRED ]); var_dump($result); } catch (AwsException $e) { // output error message if fails error_log($e->getMessage()); }
