You can now monitor your Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics application using the new Amazon CloudWatch KPU-usage metric, which shows you the number of Kinesis Processing Units (KPU) consumed by your application. KPU is a unit of stream processing capacity comprised of 4 GB memory, 1 vCPU compute, and corresponding networking capabilities. The KPU-usage metric makes it easier for you to monitor increases and decreases in your application’s resource usage as the service elastically scales the number of KPUs required to perform your analysis.

Kinesis Data Analytics is the easiest way to process streaming data in real time with standard SQL without having to learn new programming languages or processing frameworks. Kinesis Data Analytics enables you to query streaming data or build entire streaming applications using SQL, so that you can gain actionable insights and respond to your business and customer needs promptly. To get started with Kinesis Data Analytics, see the getting-started page.

Kinesis Data Analytics is available in US (Northern Virginia), US (Oregon), and EU (Ireland) AWS regions.
