Amazon Neptune is a fast, reliable, fully managed graph database service that makes it easy to build and run applications that work with highly connected datasets. The core of Amazon Neptune is a purpose-built, high-performance graph database engine optimized for storing billions of relationships and querying the graph with milliseconds latency.

Amazon Neptune has the following capabilities:

  • Supports popular graph models Property Graph and W3C’s RDF, and their respective query languages Apache TinkerPop Gremlin and SPARQL.
  • Powers graph use cases such as recommendation engines, fraud detection, knowledge graphs, drug discovery, and network security.

Use the OpsRamp AWS public cloud integration to discover and collect metrics against the AWS service.

Setup

To set up the OpsRamp AWS integration and discover the AWS service, go to AWS Integration Discovery Profile and select Neptune DB Cluster or Neptune DB Instance.
