Publishes metric data points to Amazon CloudWatch. Amazon Cloudwatch associates the data points with the specified metric. If the specified metric does not exist, Amazon CloudWatch creates the metric. It can take up to fifteen minutes for a new metric to appear in calls to the ListMetrics action.

The size of a PutMetricData request is limited to 8 KB for HTTP GET requests and 40 KB for HTTP POST requests.

Although the Value parameter accepts numbers of type Double, Amazon CloudWatch truncates values with very large exponents. Values with base-10 exponents greater than 126 (1 x 10^126) are truncated. Likewise, values with base-10 exponents less than -130 (1 x 10^-130) are also truncated.

Data that is timestamped 24 hours or more in the past may take in excess of 48 hours to become available from submission time using GetMetricStatistics.

See: AWS API Reference for PutMetricData.
