Metric Alert

Metric alerts are triggered when a metric exceeds a specific threshold for a specified period of time. Metrics are an aggregation of event occurrences. An example is to set an alert triggered when a Lambda function's error rate increases by 10% or more over the last 10 minutes.

The alert type is displayed below the alert name on the Alerts page.
