The Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) is a web service that makes it easier to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the AWS Cloud. It provides cost-efficient, resizable capacity for an industry-standard relational database and manages common database administration tasks.
A DB instance is an isolated database environment in the AWS Cloud with the following characteristics:
- Can have multiple user-created databases.
- Runs a DB engine. Amazon RDS currently supports the MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, Oracle, and Microsoft SQL Server DB engines.
- Each DB engine has its own supported features, and each version of a DB engine may include specific features.
- Has a set of parameters in a DB parameter group that controls the behavior of the databases that it manages.
You can do the following:
- Access a DB instance using the same tools and applications used with a standalone database instance.
- Create and change a DB instance by using the AWS Command Line Interface, the Amazon RDS API, or the AWS Management Console.
Use the AWS public cloud integration to discover and collect metrics against the AWS service.
To set up the AWS integration and discover the AWS service, navigate to AWS Integration Discovery Profile and select
