You can use the
GetMetricData API to retrieve as many as 100 different
metrics in a single request, with a total of as many as 100,800 datapoints. You can
also optionally perform math expressions on the values of the returned statistics,
to create new time series that represent new insights into your data. For example,
using Lambda metrics, you could divide the Errors metric by the Invocations metric
to get an error rate time series. For more information about metric math expressions,
Math Syntax and Functions in the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide.
Calls to the
GetMetricData API have a different pricing structure than
GetMetricStatistics. For more information about pricing, see
Amazon CloudWatch Pricing.
Amazon CloudWatch retains metric data as follows:
Data points with a period of less than 60 seconds are available for 3 hours. These
data points are high-resolution metrics and are available only for custom metrics
that have been defined with a
StorageResolution of 1.
Data points with a period of 60 seconds (1-minute) are available for 15 days.
Data points with a period of 300 seconds (5-minute) are available for 63 days.
Data points with a period of 3600 seconds (1 hour) are available for 455 days (15 months).
Data points that are initially published with a shorter period are aggregated together for long-term storage. For example, if you collect data using a period of 1 minute, the data remains available for 15 days with 1-minute resolution. After 15 days, this data is still available, but is aggregated and retrievable only with a resolution of 5 minutes. After 63 days, the data is further aggregated and is available with a resolution of 1 hour.
For .NET Core and PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to GetMetricDataAsync.
