Based on the AMP Troubleshooting page, here: and some other pages I was able to find online from users who have attempted to use this service (, it appears that Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus does not yet support Out-of-order timestamps. So there's no way to configure this option when using AWS-managed Prometheus.

Checking on this official Prometheus page linked from the AWS docs: and searches of the Prometheus issue tracker, it seems that the project stills considers the feature "experimental" and it may have some outstanding bugs (like which may be why AWS has not chosen to support it.

Instead, you'll have to fix the root cause of the timestamps at their source, by either overwriting the timestamps or fixing the misconfigurations that led to incorrect timestamps in the first place.
