Enabling Metrics for the AWS SDK for Java

The AWS SDK for Java can generate metrics for visualization and monitoring with CloudWatch that measure:

  • your application’s performance when accessing AWS

  • the performance of your JVMs when used with AWS

  • runtime environment details such as heap memory, number of threads, and opened file descriptors

Note

The AWS SDK Metrics for Enterprise Support is another option for gathering metrics about your application. SDK Metrics is an AWS service that publishes data to Amazon CloudWatch and enables you to share metric data with AWS Support for easier troubleshooting. See Enabling AWS SDK Metrics for Enterprise Support to learn how to enable the SDK Metrics service for your application.

How to Enable Java SDK Metric Generation

AWS SDK for Java metrics are disabled by default. To enable it for your local development environment, include a system property that points to your AWS security credential file when starting up the JVM. For example:

You need to specify the path to your credential file so that the SDK can upload the gathered datapoints to CloudWatch for later analysis.

Note

If you are accessing AWS from an Amazon EC2 instance using the Amazon EC2 instance metadata service, you don’t need to specify a credential file. In this case, you need only specify:

All metrics captured by the AWS SDK for Java are under the namespace AWSSDK/Java, and are uploaded to the CloudWatch default region (us-east-1). To change the region, specify it by using the attribute in the system property. For example, to set the CloudWatch region to us-east-1, use:

Once you enable the feature, every time there is a service request to AWS from the AWS SDK for Java, metric data points will be generated, queued for statistical summary, and uploaded asynchronously to CloudWatch about once every minute. Once metrics have been uploaded, you can visualize them using the AWS Management Console and set alarms on potential problems such as memory leakage, file descriptor leakage, and so on.

Available Metric Types

The default set of metrics is divided into three major categories:

AWS Request Metrics
  • Covers areas such as the latency of the HTTP request/response, number of requests, exceptions, and retries.

AWS service Metrics
  • Include AWS service-specific data, such as the throughput and byte count for S3 uploads and downloads.

Machine Metrics
  • Cover the runtime environment, including heap memory, number of threads, and open file descriptors.

    If you want to exclude Machine Metrics, add to the system property:

SDK Metrics in the AWS SDK for JavaScript

AWS SDK Metrics for Enterprise Support (SDK Metrics) enables Enterprise customers to collect metrics from AWS SDKs on their hosts and clients that are shared with AWS Enterprise Support. SDK Metrics provides information that helps speed up detection and diagnosis of issues occurring in connections to AWS services for AWS Enterprise Support customers.

As telemetry is collected on each host, it is relayed via UDP to 127.0.0.1 (localhost), where the Amazon CloudWatch agent aggregates the data and sends it to the SDK Metrics service. Therefore, to receive metrics, the CloudWatch agent must be added to your instance.

Learn more about SDK Metrics in the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide.

The following topics describe how to configure and manage SDK Metrics for the SDK for JavaScript.

Authorize SDK Metrics to Collect and Send Metrics

Enterprise customers who want to collect metrics from AWS SDKs using AWS SDK Metrics for Enterprise Support must create an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role that gives the CloudWatch agent permission to gather data from their Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance or production environment.

For details about how to create an IAM policy and role to access SDK Metrics, see IAM Permissions for SDK Metrics in the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide.

Set Up SDK Metrics for the SDK for JavaScript

The following steps demonstrate how to set up SDK Metrics for the AWS SDK for JavaScript. These steps apply to an Amazon EC2 instance running Amazon Linux for a client application that is using the SDK for JavaScript. SDK Metrics is also available for your production environments if you enable it while configuring the SDK for JavaScript.

To use SDK Metrics, run the latest version of the CloudWatch agent. Learn how to Configure the CloudWatch agent for SDK Metrics in the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide.

To set up SDK Metrics with the SDK for JavaScript

  1. Create an application with an AWS SDK for JavaScript client to use an AWS service.

  2. Host your project on an Amazon EC2 instance or in your local environment.

  3. Install and use the latest version of the SDK for JavaScript.

  4. Install and configure a CloudWatch agent on an Amazon EC2 instance or in your local environment.

  5. Authorize SDK Metrics to collect and send metrics.

  6. Enable SDK Metrics for the SDK for JavaScript.

By default, SDK Metrics is turned off and the port is set to 31000. The following are the default parameters.

Enabling SDK Metrics is independent of configuring your credentials to use an AWS service.

You can enable SDK Metrics by setting environment variables or by using the shared AWS config file.

Option 1: Set Environment Variables

If isn't set, the SDK checks the profile specified in the environment variable under to determine if SDK Metrics is enabled. By default this is set to .

To turn on SDK Metrics, add the following to your environmental variables.

Option 2: Use the Shared AWS Config File

If no CSM configuration is found in the environment variables, the SDK looks for your default AWS profile field. If is set to something other than , update that profile.

To enable SDK Metrics, add to the shared config file located at .

Note

  • Other configuration settings are available.

  • Enabling SDK Metrics is independent of configuring your credentials to use an AWS service. You can use a different profile to authenticate.

In addition to enabling SDK Metrics through an environment variable or config file, as shown previously, you can also enable the collection of metrics for a specific scope.

The following scenarios show the scopes for which you can enable SDK Metrics.

For all service clients, you can turn on the client-side monitoring in the service configuration as follows.

For subclasses, such as and , you can turn on the client-side monitoring, as shown in the following example.

You can also turn on the client-side monitoring for all AWS services.

Or you can turn on the client-side monitoring for all the clients created from the specific service. For example:

Update a CloudWatch Agent

To make changes to the port, you need to set the value and then restart any AWS jobs that are currently active.

Most services use the default port. But if your service requires a unique port ID, add that to the host's environment variables or the shared AWS config file.

Add a Port ID

Option 1: Set Environment Variables

Add a unique port ID, , to the host's environment variables.

For example:

Option 2: Use a Shared AWS Config File

Add a unique port ID, , to the shared AWS config file at .

For example:

Restart SDK Metrics

To restart a job, run the following commands.

Disable SDK Metrics

To turn off SDK Metrics, set to in your environment variables or in your shared AWS config file located at . Then stop and restart your CloudWatch agent so that the changes can take effect.

Set csm_enabled to false

Option 1: Set Environment Variables

Option 2: Use the Shared AWS Config File

Remove from the profiles in your shared AWS config file located at .

Note

Environment variables override the shared AWS config file. If SDK Metrics is enabled in the environment variables, SDK Metrics remain enabled.

Stop SDK Metrics and Restart the CloudWatch Agent

To disable SDK Metrics, use the following command to stop the CloudWatch agent.

If you are using other CloudWatch features, restart the CloudWatch agent using the following command.

Definitions for SDK Metrics

To interpret your results, you can use the following descriptions of SDK Metrics. In general, these metrics are available for review with your Technical Account Manager during regular business reviews.

AWS Support resources and your Technical Account Manager should have access to SDK Metrics data to help you resolve cases. However, if you discover data that is confusing or unexpected but doesn’t seem to be negatively impacting your application performance, it is best to review that data during scheduled business reviews.

Metric:CallCount

Definition

Total number of successful or failed API calls from your code to AWS services.

How to use it

Use as a baseline to correlate with other metrics, such as errors or throttling.

Metric:ClientErrorCount

Definition

Number of API calls that fail with client errors (4xx HTTP response codes).

Examples: Throttling, Access denied, S3 bucket does not exist, and Invalid parameter value.

How to use it

Except in certain cases related to throttling (for example, when throttling occurs due to a limit that needs to be increased) this metric can indicate something in your application that needs to be fixed.

Metric:ConnectionErrorCount

Definition

Number of API calls that fail because of errors connecting to the service. These can be caused by network issues between the customer application and AWS services, including load balancers, DNS failures, and transit providers. In some cases, AWS issues might result in this error.

How to use it

Use to determine whether issues are specific to your application or are caused by your infrastructure or network. High could also indicate short timeout values for API calls.

Metric:ThrottleCount

Definition

Number of API calls that fail due to throttling by AWS services.

How to use it

Use this metric to assess if your application has reached throttle limits, and to determine the cause of retries and application latency. Consider distributing calls over a window of time instead of batching your calls.

Metric:ServerErrorCount

Definition

Number of API calls that fail due to server errors (5xx HTTP response codes) from AWS services. These are typically caused by AWS services.

How to use it

Determine cause of SDK retries or latency. This metric does not always indicate that AWS services are at fault, because some AWS teams classify latency as an HTTP 503 response.

Metric: EndToEndLatency

Definition

Total time for your application to make a call using the AWS SDK, inclusive of retries. In other words, regardless of whether it is successful after several attempts, or as soon as a call fails due to an unretriable error.

How to use it

Determine how AWS API calls contribute to your application’s overall latency. Higher than expected latency can be caused by issues with network, firewall, or other configuration settings, or by latency that occurs as a result of SDK retries.

Monitor Applications Using AWS SDK Metrics

Enterprise customers can use the CloudWatch agent with AWS SDK Metrics for Enterprise Support (SDK Metrics) to collect metrics from AWS SDKs on their hosts and clients. These metrics are shared with AWS Enterprise Support. SDK Metrics can help you collect relevant metrics and diagnostic data about your application's connections to AWS services without adding custom instrumentation to your code, and reduces the manual work necessary to share logs and data with AWS Support.

Important
SDK Metrics is available only to customers with an Enterprise Support subscription. For more information, see Amazon CloudWatch Support Center.

You can use SDK Metrics with any application that directly calls AWS services and that was built using an AWS SDK that is one of the versions listed in the following section.

SDK Metrics monitors calls that are made by the AWS SDK and uses the CloudWatch agent running in the same environment as a client application. The following section explains the steps necessary to enable the CloudWatch agent to emit SDK Metrics data. For information about what you need to configure in your SDK, see your SDK documentation.

Topics

Using the New Client-Side Metrics feature in the AWS SDK for Java v2

by Dongie Agnir | on | in Announcements, AWS Java Development, AWS SDK for Java, Best Practices, Java, Technical How-to | Permalink | Comments |  Share

We are pleased to announce the preview release of the metrics module for AWS SDK for Java v2!

The metrics module enables you to collect and publish key performance metrics recorded automatically by the SDK as you use it. These metrics will help you detect and diagnose issues in your applications like increased API call latency and startup time. You can even use the metrics to monitor trends in your SDK usage over time and tune the SDK for optimal performance and resource usage.

Collecting and Publishing Metrics

Out of the box, you can start collecting and publishing metrics to Amazon CloudWatch with just a few lines of code:

First add to your :

Then, create and set the publisher on the clients you want to publish metrics for:

That’s all there is to it. Now, as you use the SDK, the will collect metrics in the background and hand them to the CloudWatch publisher to be sent to the CloudWatch service. You can view and access data through the CloudWatch SDK or Console, or create dashboards and alarms to monitor your SDK usage.

 

Publishing Metrics to Custom Location

If you’d like to publish the SDK’s metrics to a place other than CloudWatch, we’ve got you covered. You’d need to implement the to publish metrics to a location of your choice. A simple publisher that logs the metrics to a file is just a few lines of code away:

We’ll see below that thanks to the insight we get from the metrics recorded by the SDK, even a simple publisher like this one can be a big help.

Metrics in action

Let’s imagine we have a simple application that downloads a file from S3, using a given STS role.

Here, the method simply downloads the object using the given role ARN:

As awesome engineers, we want this method to be as efficient as possible. Without metrics however, it’s difficult to know what we need to be change or optimize to lower the latency without a lot of digging. This is where metrics comes to the rescue.

Looking at the output of our simple , we can see that a large portion of time is spent fetching credentials. The first fetch is especially long at .84 seconds because of the additional overhead to establish a TCP connection to STS.

A cool thing about the we’re using is that it actually caches credentials to avoid making unnecessary extra API requests. With this in mind, we can make a quick and simple optimization so that we can reuse the credentials provider rather than creating a new one for each S3 request:

Looks good! Let’s run the code again to see how it performs now.

We can see that the first request still takes a while to fetch credentials because it doesn’t have cached credentials yet. However, the following two requests spend virtually no time fetching credentials because we’re reusing the same provider that already has the credentials cached internally. Nice!

Conclusion

I hope that this short post and example have shown the utility of having detailed metrics to monitor, diagnose, and optimize SDK usage and performance, and invite you try it out for yourself! Head over to our GitHub where you can find the SDK and give feedback through the Issues page. Be sure to check out our developer guide as well which has more in depth information on using the metrics module.

What is Amazon CloudWatch?

Amazon CloudWatch monitors your Amazon Web Services (AWS) resources and the applications you run on AWS in real time. You can use CloudWatch to collect and track metrics, which are variables you can measure for your resources and applications.

The CloudWatch home page automatically displays metrics about every AWS service you use. You can additionally create custom dashboards to display metrics about your custom applications, and display custom collections of metrics that you choose.

You can create alarms that watch metrics and send notifications or automatically make changes to the resources you are monitoring when a threshold is breached. For example, you can monitor the CPU usage and disk reads and writes of your Amazon EC2 instances and then use this data to determine whether you should launch additional instances to handle increased load. You can also use this data to stop under-used instances to save money.

With CloudWatch, you gain system-wide visibility into resource utilization, application performance, and operational health.

Accessing CloudWatch

You can access CloudWatch using any of the following methods:

Related AWS services

The following services are used along with Amazon CloudWatch:

  • Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) coordinates and manages the delivery or sending of messages to subscribing endpoints or clients. You use Amazon SNS with CloudWatch to send messages when an alarm threshold has been reached. For more information, see Setting up Amazon SNS notifications.

  • Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling enables you to automatically launch or terminate Amazon EC2 instances based on user-defined policies, health status checks, and schedules. You can use a CloudWatch alarm with Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling to scale your EC2 instances based on demand. For more information, see Dynamic Scaling in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide.

  • AWS CloudTrail enables you to monitor the calls made to the Amazon CloudWatch API for your account, including calls made by the AWS Management Console, AWS CLI, and other services. When CloudTrail logging is turned on, CloudWatch writes log files to the Amazon S3 bucket that you specified when you configured CloudTrail. For more information, see Logging Amazon CloudWatch API calls with AWS CloudTrail.

  • AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a web service that helps you securely control access to AWS resources for your users. Use IAM to control who can use your AWS resources (authentication) and what resources they can use in which ways (authorization). For more information, see Identity and access management for Amazon CloudWatch.
