Quota Monitor for AWS

Monitor resource usage and send notifications when approaching quotas


This solution helps you proactively track resource usage and send notifications when you approach quotas. Tracking your usage against AWS service quotas shows you whether you are approaching a given quota so that you can proactively request a service quota increase before you exceed a quota. It leverages the AWS Trusted Advisor Service Limits checks and Service Quotas to monitor AWS resource usage and raise alerts. The solution uses AWS Support APIs in the Trusted Advisor spoke stack. The APIs require a Business-level or Enterprise-level AWS Support plan. However, the rest of the solution components do not require a paid plan.


Track resource usage

Provision the services necessary to proactively track resource usage and send notifications when you approach quotas. 

Notifications via email or Slack

Receive notifications via email or your existing Slack channel, enabling you to request quota increases or shut down resources before the quota is reached.

Technical details
