Amazon CloudWatch alarm watches a single metric over a time period that the user specifies and
performs one or more actions based on the value of the metric relative to a given threshold over a
number of time periods. When the user has setup an alarm and it is know that for some
unavoidable event the status may change to Alarm, the user can disable the alarm using the
DisableAlarmActions API or from the command line mon-disable-alarm-actions.
