The Recovery Kit for Route 53™ resource monitors the normality of the retrieval of the DNS A record registered at the time of creation and the association with the virtual IP address. The monitoring process is as follows.
- Obtain the address set in the Route53 A record with the API. If it fails to obtain the record, it will stop the monitoring and record the failure in the log.
- Obtain the target IP address and compare it with the IP address in the DNS A record information. If the IP address information matches, then exit with a success as no errors exist. If the IP addresses do not match then exit with a failure to initiate a local recovery.
