There are several types of available alerts with customizable triggers and integrations.

Event Alert
Triggered when a event occurs that matches the alert condition. For example, when an ECS service throws an exception or a Lambda function times out.

Metric Alert
Triggered when a metric exceeds a specific threshold for a specified period of time. Metrics are an aggregation of event occurrences over time. For example, the error rate of a Lambda function increases by 10% over the last 10 minutes.

CloudWatch Metric Alert
Triggered when a CloudWatch metric exceeds a specific threshold for a specified period of time. For example, the number of messages added to an SQS queue is greater than 10 in the last 10 minutes.
