AWS RDS Instance CPU Utilization
This alert relates to the AWS relational database service (RDS) CPU Utilization. We use RDS to run both PostgreSQL and MySQL databases in AWS.
We use db-admin machines as jumpboxes to connect to the RDS instances via a database client application. There are a number of db-admin machines for various RDS instances.
There are two ways to check the current usage:
- Access the AWS web console and view the statistics.
- Access a “db-admin” instance via SSH and access the database console. Then you should be able to view the current queries in action.
