API Calls For AWS Integration Monitoring

Hello, 

I am seeking additional details around how the AWS integration works in terms of number of API calls that happen for monitoring and at what frequency?

 

Would it be one call per given default/supporting service metric defined in the integration? Lastly, is there a way to see the amount of API calls Dynatrace is making to a given AWS account in the UI? 

 

Looking for this info to help evaluate the number of API calls occurring for monitoring against a best practice CloudWatch limit from AWS.

 

Thanks for reviewing, appreciate any help!

Details I received on the topic:

Our default services usually have around 10 metrics. Say you have N instances in total of various default services (estimating it would be on you). We query for 500 metrics per each API call using the GetMetricsData API. This way you can calculate the number of API calls to CloudWatch per 5 minutes as: 10 * N / 500
