I have a CloudWatch metric that is the integer size of a queue, published at a 1min interval. Is there a way to use a math expression to get the average decrease in queue size at a 5min interval?
I guess first I would need a metric that is
-(size_t - size_t-1), then a metric that is the 5min average of that. I'm having trouble figuring out how I can get a diff between points that is an integer value rather than a rate.
