Monitoring AWS Route 53 with New Relic Infrastructure

AWS Route 53 is a Domain Name System (DNS) server used to translate domain names (for example: into numeric IP addresses. You can use this service to set up DNS health checks and route end user requests to certain destinations. It also supports several routing types, like Latency Based Routing, Geo DNS, Geo Proximity, and Weighted Round Robin.

But what if something goes wrong in the service? You need to make sure you have the right monitoring in place.

What you can monitor with our AWS Route 53 integration

Domain health check status

An easy and binary indicator which tells you the status of your domain.


Time to first byte

An average measure of the time taken to receive the first byte of data.




Connection time

The amount of time a health check takes to establish a connection.
