MSK Connector status monitoring


Hi Team,

We've MSK connectors (source and sink) created in AWS which are now Running and working fine. We want to create a Cloudwatch alarm if any of them are not in "Running" status. I went through but I don't see there's any Metrics named "status". Please tell me how can I monitor the running status of these connectors?

As per the given article [1], you can setup alarm on "RunningTaskCount" metrics. Once it fails, the connector will auto change to Failed status.

A few key metrics to monitor from CloudWatch metrics for your connector:

ErroredTaskCount: The number of tasks that have errored out. RunningTaskCount: The running number of tasks in the connector. WorkerCount: The number of workers that are running in the connector.
