How can I tell how many records are in a Kinesis stream?
Amazon Web Services (AWS): S3, EC2, SQS, RDS, DynamoDB, IAM, CloudFormation, Route 53, VPC and more reddit.com
We have a process where database changes are replicated to DMS then to a Kinesis stream then we have a lamda processing these changes and updating an elastic cluster. This process gets behind sometimes due to a huge number of database changes. How can I pull metrics to know how many records are in the kinesis stream? I see no way to do this without putting an SQS queue between kinesis and Lamda and that seems dumb.submitted by /u/Unexpectedpicard
