Amazon RDS Exporter (rds_exporter)

The Amazon RDS exporter makes the Amazon Cloudwatch metrics available to PMM. PMM uses this exporter to obtain metrics from any Amazon RDS node that you choose to monitor.

Metrics

The Amazon RDS exporter has two types of metrics: basic and advanced. To be able to use advanced metrics, make sure to set the Enable Enhanced Monitoring option in the settings of your Amazon RDS DB instance.
