This option will send you an alert if any table is larger than the size you specify.

Alert if the table [TABLE] is larger than a specified size

This option will alert you if the table you specify in the text box is larger than the specified size.

Consumed Read Capacity

Alert if any table has consumed read capacity larger than a specified capacity

This option will send an alert if any table has consumed read capacity larger than what you've specified.

Alert if the table [TABLE] has consumed read capacity larger than a specified capacity

Check this box to receive an alert if the table you choose has consumed read capacity larger than specified.

Alert if the total consumed read capacity across all tables is larger than a specified capacity

Check this box to receive an alert if the total consumed read capacity across all tables is larger than the capacity you specify.

Alert if any table has consumed read capacity percentage larger than a specified amount

This option will send an alert if any table has consumed read capacity percentage larger than what you've specified.

Alert if the table [TABLE] has consumed read capacity percentage larger than a specified amount

Check this box to receive an alert if the table you designate has consumed read capacity larger than the amount you've specified.

Consumed Write Capacity

Alert if any table has consumed write capacity larger than a specified capacity

This option will send an alert if any table has consumed write capacity larger than what you've specified.

Alert if the table [TABLE] has consumed write capacity larger than a specified capacity

This option will alert you if the table you specify has consumed write capacity larger than a specified amount.

Alert if the total consumed write capacity across all tables is larger than a specified capacity

This option will send an alert if the total consumed write capacity for all tables is larger than the capacity you specify.

Alert if any table has consumed write capacity percentage larger than a specified amount

This option will send an alert if any table has consumed write capacity percentage larger than what you've specified.

Alert if the table [TABLE] has consumed read capacity percentage larger than a specified amount

This option will alert you if a table you designate has consumed read capacity higher than an amount you specify.

Provisioned Read Capacity

Alert if any table has provisioned read capacity larger than a specified capacity

This option will send an alert if any table has provisioned read capacity larger than what you've specified.

Alert if the table [TABLE] has provisioned read capacity larger than a specified capacity

Select this option to monitor a specific table and receive an alert if its provisioned read capacity exceeds a limit you specify.

Alert if the total provisioned read capacity across all tables is larger than a specified capacity

This option will alert you if the total provisioned read capacity for all your tables exceeds the capacity you specify.

Provisioned Write Capacity

Alert if any table has provisioned write capacity larger than a specified capacity

This option will send an alert if any table has provisioned write capacity larger than what you've specified.

Alert if the table [TABLE] has provisioned write capacity larger than a specified capacity

This option will alert you if the specified table has provisioned read capacity that's larger that the number you've specified.

Alert if the total provisioned write capacity across all tables is larger than a specified capacity

This option lets you specify a provisioned write capacity limit for all tables. If the combined provisioned write capacity across all tables exceeds the value you specify, you'll receive an alert.

Backups

Alert if any tables has not been backed up in the past X days

This option will alert you if the last backup for any table is longer than the number of days you specify as a limit.
