AWS RDS Metrics

Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) is optimized to run in the cloud. The RDS Amazon Web Service (AWS) simplifies the setup, operation, and scaling of relational database instances for use in applications throughout your infrastructure. 

The Sumo Logic App for AWS Observability RDS Metrics provides visibility into your Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) metrics collected with a CloudWatch metrics source. Preconfigured app dashboards allow you to monitor your RDS system's overview, CPU, memory, storage, network transmit and receive throughput, read and write operations, database connection count, disk queue depth, and more.

Metrics Types

Amazon RDS sends metrics to CloudWatch for each active database instance every minute. Monitoring is enabled by default. For more information, see Monitoring Amazon RDS in the Amazon RDS User Guide. For details on collected metrics, see Amazon RDS Metrics and Dimensions.
