Error: dynamodb system errors metric

Answered by Rafal Wilinski

What's Causing This Error

This error message indicates a system error with the metrics used by DynamoDB, preventing the operation from being completed.

The specific issue could be caused by several things, such as an issue with the metric configuration, a problem with the permissions of the IAM role or user being used to operate, or an issue with the system collecting and processing the metrics.

Solution: Here's How To Resolve It

To solve this error, check the metric configuration to ensure that it is set up correctly and that all the necessary metrics are being collected. This can be done by checking the CloudWatch Metrics in the AWS Management Console.

It's also important to check that the IAM user or role used to call the function has the necessary permissions to perform the desired operation on the DynamoDB service.

You can also try disabling and re-enabling the metrics to see if that resolves the issue.

If all the above steps fail, try rebooting the service or the instances used by DynamoDB and the metric system.

It is also essential to check that the provided access key and secret key are valid and have the necessary permissions to access the metric system.
