Appendix C: Collection of Operational Metrics - Real-Time IoT Device Monitoring with Kinesis Data Analytics

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 the products that we offer. When enabled, the following information is collected and sent to AWS each time the dashboard is viewed:

  • Solution ID: The AWS solution identifier

  • Unique ID (UUID): Randomly generated, unique identifier for each solution deployment

  • Timestamp: Data-collection timestamp

  • Dashboard Views: The number of times the dashboard is viewed

  • Processed Metrics: The number of times metrics are updated

Note that AWS will own the data gathered via this survey. Data collection will be subject to the AWS Privacy Policy. To opt out of this feature, complete one of the following tasks:

a) Modify the AWS CloudFormation template mapping section as follows:

Solution: Data: SendAnonymousUsageData: "True"


Solution: Data: SendAnonymousUsageData: "False"


b) After the solution has been launched, find the CustomResourceHelper in the Lambda console and set the SEND_ANONYMOUS_DATA environment variable to False.
