Can I get my PostgreSQL, MySQL and Maria DB metrics from Amazon RDS?

Yes you can! In addition to leveraging the AWS RDS Integration, it's also possible to remotely connect to your instances to take advantage of our application specific integrations. These instructions are specific to Postgres but may be applied to other databases supported by RDS:

  1. Install the agent on an ec2 instance that can connect to the RDS instance
  2. Use the RDS endpoint in conf.d/postgres.yaml (host and port)
  3. Add tags in postgres.yaml: dbinstanceidentifier:(rds-instance-id), enginename:postgres
  4. Restart the agent
