Appendix C: Collection of Operational Metrics

This solution includes an option to send anonymous operational metrics to AWS. We use this data to better understand how customers use this solution to improve the services and products that we offer. When enabled, the following information is collected and sent to AWS during the initial stack creation:

  • Solution ID: The AWS solution identifier

  • Unique ID (UUID): Randomly generated, unique identifier for each Real-Time Analytics with Spark Streaming deployment

  • Timestamp: Data-collection timestamp

  • EMR Data: Type of instances and count of the number of instances

    Example data:

    {"Master": "1", "InstanceType": "r3.xlarge", "CoreInstance": "2", "InstanceType": "r3.xlarge", "Region": "us-east-1"}
