Amazon Relational Database Services (RDS) is the database as a service (DBaaS) offering from Amazon Web Services (AWS) that allows customers to configure, operate, and scale a database in the cloud. Six different types of databases are currently available via RDS, including: Amazon Aurora, MySQL, MariaDB, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, and PostgreSQL
Because the AppDynamics database monitoring solution employs a remote-based monitoring technique to collect performance metrics (i.e., no install or change on the database host), it can support all databases offered via RDS.
Discover the root cause quickly and resolve costly performance problems with real-time visibility into the Amazon RDS server via metrics collected from Amazon CloudWatch.
Analyze data and receive alerts based on the server trends documented over time by Amazon RDS monitoring. Use this information to proactively tune performance to improve resource efficiency and optimize end user experiences.
Quickly troubleshoot issues with a one-click analysis that displays details of the SQL statement and execution plan.
Gain a holistic view of your Amazon RDS database objects. Display current Amazon RDS configuration parameters, properties, and information related to database objects.
Visualize important information, like historical reporting of time series comparisons and top SQL reports to make data-driven decisions about your Amazon RDS servers.
