Quota Monitor for AWS

Monitor resource usage and receive notifications when approaching quotas

Overview

Quota Monitor for AWS helps you proactively track your resource usage and sends email or Slack notifications when you approach quotas. Tracking your usage against Service Quotas helps you plan for requesting a quota increase before you exceed the quota. This AWS Solution leverages AWS Trusted Advisor and Service Quotas to monitor AWS resource usage and raise alerts. You can use this solution in any AWS Region, including AWS GovCloud (US) Regions.

This solution includes a Hub template that you deploy in your monitoring account. Additionally, the solution provides a Service Quotas spoke template and a Trusted Advisor spoke template. You must deploy each of these templates in the accounts that need quota monitoring.
