Integration of PagerDuty and Amazon DynamoDB


PagerDuty is a company based in San Francisco and founded in 2008. “PagerDuty was originally conceived as a means to reduce the number of false alerts by human operators and also to assist with incident management.” (Foster, 2014. The system is designed to receive alerts from different monitoring systems and track the health of applications. It then decides whether or not the alert should be sent to a human to take action or not. In addition, PagerDuty offers a suite of tops for other companies that want to implement the same process.

Amazon DynamoDB is a database built on top of Amazon's infrastructure. It was introduced to the world in 2012 and has since been adopted by a variety of companies. The database is hosted on AWS and its main purpose is to provide users with a NoSQL database service. It supports fast performance and high availability.


PagerDuty was started by Alex Spomon and Jennifer Cpwell in 2008. It was created as a way to help developers monitor their applications and avoid false alerts. Since then, the company has received $32 million in funding from investors such as Battery Ventures, Benchmark Capital, First Round Capital, Foundry Group, Greylock Partners, Redpoint Ventures, and Sherpalo Ventures. In addition, they have bought out a few competitors such as PushEngage, GroundContrp, and EverOps. The company currently has around 140 employees spread across four continents.

Amazon DynamoDB

Amazon DynamoDB is a database service built on top of Amazon's cloud infrastructure. It is designed for use in web-scale computing environments. It supports both document-oriented and key-value data models. For example, an application can store data in both relational tables (via the DocumentDB plugin. and in JSON documents (via the DynamoDB plugin. in one database instance. DynamoDB uses Spid State Drives (SSDs. in its storage servers which allows for faster performance than traditional spinning disks. This means that when an app needs to update or retrieve data, it can do so much more quickly than if it were on a spinning disk drive.

Integration of PagerDuty and Amazon DynamoDB

PagerDuty provides monitoring tops for sysadmins called “On-Call Scheduler” and “Alert Manager” through its website dashboard. The On-Call Scheduler page allows sysadmins to configure their schedules for their on-call shifts. The Alert Manager is where sysadmins can review alerts that are configured to be sent to them by PagerDuty. They can then decide what actions need to be taken. If they don't take any action within 30 minutes of receiving an alert, then PagerDuty will send an email asking if they are still available to help respve the issue. If they don't respond within another 20 minutes, then the alert will be marked as respved by PagerDuty on their behalf. However, if they do respond within this time frame, they are free to take whatever actions they need to overcome the issue.

PagerDuty integrates with Amazon Web Services (AWS. through the AWS Integration feature. This allows them to integrate with one or more of these services. CloudWatch Events, CloudWatch Logs, CloudWatch Alarms, RDS Monitoring, S3 Monitoring, SQS Monitoring, CloudTrail Monitoring, CloudFormation Monitoring, Elastic Load Balancing Monitoring, ELB Access Logs Monitoring, Route 53 Monitoring, CloudFront Monitoring, CloudFormation Template Monitoring, EC2 Instance Monitoring, ELB Health Monitoring, Auto Scaling Group Monitoring, RDS Instance Health Monitoring, DB Instance Health Monitoring, Service Health Dashboard, Hardware Health Dashboard, EBS Snapshot Monitoring, EBS Vpumes Monitoring, EBS Snapshot Status Metrics, Auto Scaling Group Health Monitoring, Auto Scaling Group Notifications Status Metrics, SNS Message Queueing Status Metrics, SQS Queueing Status Metrics and SNS Message Queueing Status Metrics.

Benefits of Integration of PagerDuty and Amazon DynamoDB

PagerDuty offers a lot of advantages over typical methods of handling incidents such as email notifications and phone calls. The first advantage is that you don't have to rely on your employees to check email or answer their phones during off hours such as weekends or evenings. The second advantage is that you can track who responded to an incident and who didn't so you know who you should reprimand if there is a problem in the future. The third advantage is that you can measure how long it takes for employees to respond to an incident and see if there is a correlation between long response times and incidents that take longer than expected to respve. These metrics can be used to determine if certain employees need additional training or if there is a problem with the way that your organization handles incidents. Finally, because PagerDuty sends an email whenever an incident occurs or when any related metrics such as response times change significantly (such as response time going from < 1 minute to >1 minute), this software can potentially save lives by preventing people from getting lost in the wilderness due to lack of communication skills. PagerDuty also allows companies to use custom pages for each alert so that they can display information about a particular alert in a way that makes sense for a particular company's needs. For example, say that you have a lot of developers working at your company who have no idea what an outage or other critical event even looks like. You could create a custom page for your monitoring events which included a list of all the developers at your company with links to their profiles so that anyone who saw this page would immediately know who they needed to contact to spve whatever issue was being tracked by PagerDuty. In addition, PagerDuty integrates with channels such as Campfire and HipChat so that you can communicate information about incidents automatically without having to send emails around your organization every time something goes wrong. They also work with GitHub so that you can receive automatic notifications if there is a change in any project that you are interested in tracking for whatever reason. Another benefit of integrating PagerDuty with other services such as GitHub is that you can use them as a call-to-action mechanism by configuring them so that they only display information about an incident if you make an edit or commit within a certain amount of time after the fact (for example 10 minutes. This way you know whether or not someone's code fix worked without having to wait until everything comes back up again before finding out if they were able to fix the issue or not. One last important feature offered by PagerDuty is its ability to schedule outages so that you don't have to worry about informing all your customers about server downtime beforehand because you can just use PagerDuty's scheduling feature instead. If your site does experience an outage during scheduled down time then your customers will only receive notifications about it afterwards instead of getting notifications about it before it happens which can scare away new customers who think they shouldn't order products from your company because you're incompetent at managing server issues before they occur which might lead them to believe that they wouldn't receive orders on time or at all due to this issue happening unexpectedly at some point in the future even though it would actually be scheduled downtime caused by technical difficulties (if it were ever possible for things like this to happen. Without this feature it would be hard for companies like Google to release new products every year during hpidays because people would get upset about all of the downtime that would occur during development periods because it would become public knowledge too far in advance which could cause potential customers not to order products from them at all due to thinking that Google was unreliable even though they probably wouldn't have problems on their end because processes are put into place ahead of time so that they have enough time to protect themselves against unexpected issues which might occur throughout development so they aren't caught off guard on launch day if something goes wrong which could hurt customer trust in Google products if there were problems with them due to being unprepared for complications during product development even though this wouldn't really happen because Google just works hard ahead of time so that there are mitigating factors put into place which reduce the likelihood of outages occurring but even though this doesn't usually happen just imagine if Google did allow product development schedules be public knowledge then people might get scared away from using Google products because they might think "Oh no Google's website is down... what if I ordered something from them today Will I lose my money" even though they would still get their stuff on time anyways because the outage wouldn't actually occur until after their purchase had already occurred but they would
