On April 8, Amazon ES launched support for event monitoring and alerting. To use this feature, you work with monitors—scheduled jobs—that have triggers, which are specific conditions that you set, telling the monitor when it should send an alert. An alert is a notification that the triggering condition occurred. When a trigger fires, the monitor takes action, sending a message to your destination.
This post uses a simulated IoT device farm to generate and send data to Amazon ES.
