The AWS Solutions team has updated the AWS Limit Monitor, a solution that automatically provisions the services necessary to proactively track resource usage and send notifications as you approach limits. The solution now allows you to customize the service limits you want to check. The solution also includes an optional configuration to send notifications to an existing Slack channel.  

The solution deploys AWS Lambda, Amazon CloudWatch, Amazon SQS, and Amazon DynamoDB. If you enable notifications, Amazon SNS is deployed. If you enable Slack notifications, AWS Systems Manager is deployed. For pricing details, see the pricing webpage for each AWS service you will be using in this solution. To learn more about the AWS Limit Monitor, see the solution webpage.
