node-cloudwatch

This is an AWS CloudWatch client for Node.js. For a real use-case, see node-monitor.

Pre-Reqs

Via the command line, or process.env, set:

process.env['AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID'] = '<ID>'; 
process.env['AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY'] = '<KEY>';

Then instantiate a new client in your application:

var REST = require('node-cloudwatch');
var client = new REST.AmazonCloudwatchClient();

Usage

To list all metrics:

client.request('ListMetrics', {}, function (response) {
  console.log(JSON.stringify(response));
});    

To push custom metrics:

var params = {};

params['Namespace'] = 'MyCustomNamespace';
params['MetricData.member.1.MetricName'] = 'MyCustomMetric';
params['MetricData.member.1.Unit'] = 'MyUnit';
params['MetricData.member.1.Value'] = 'MyValue';
params['MetricData.member.1.Dimensions.member.1.Name'] = 'InstanceID';
params['MetricData.member.1.Dimensions.member.1.Value'] = 'i-XXXXXX';

client.request('PutMetricData', params, function (response) {
  console.log(JSON.stringify(response));
});
