Event alerts are triggered when an event occurrence matches the alert condition. These events might be Error, Exception, Timeout, Out of Memory, Insight (an Amazon Lambda function about to reach a time or memory limit), and Programmatic Errors. For example, an exception thrown by an ECS service or a timed-out Lambda function can trigger an event alert.
The alert type is displayed below the alert name on the Alerts page.
