Hi Damien,

That looks like a pretty good list!  In case you haven't included it in EC2
and RDS:
1. upcoming scheduled AWS maintenance affecting your instances;
2. EC2 instance running low on, and/or predicted to run out of CPU credits
based on utilization over the last x hours.

I wish you all the best in your endeavors.

Kind regards,
