The Particular throughput tool can be installed locally and run against a production system to discover the throughput of each endpoint in a system over a period of time.
This article details how to collect endpoint and throughput data when the system uses the Amazon SQS transport. Refer to the throughput counter main page for information how to install/uninstall the tool or for other data collection options.
Authentication to AWS requires a AWS credentials profile, or credentials can be created from the
AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY environment variables, if both are not empty. The tool uses default constructors for the SQS and CloudWatch clients and follows the credential and profile resolution rules determined by the AWS SDK.
The AWS region can be specified either by command-line parameter or by the
AWS_REGION environment variable.
If the tool was installed as a .NET tool, execute the tool as shown:
throughput-counter sqs [options]
Or, if using the self-contained executable:
Particular.EndpointThroughputCounter.exe sqs [options]

Unlike ServiceControl, using SQS and CloudWatch metrics allows the tool to capture the last 30 days worth of data at once, which means that the report will be generated without delay. Although the tool collects 30 days worth of data, only the highest daily throughput is included in the report.
