Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility) Performance Insights is a database performance tuning and monitoring feature that helps you quickly assess the load on your database and determine when and where to take action.

Amazon DocumentDB Performance Insights allows developers and admins to measure database performance with an easy-to-understand dashboard that visualizes database load. With one click, you can add a fully managed performance monitoring solution to your DocumentDB instances. Performance Insights automatically gathers the necessary performance metrics and visualizes them in a dynamic dashboard on the Amazon DocumentDB console. You can identify your database’s top performance bottlenecks from a single graph.

To get started, log into the Amazon DocumentDB Management Console and enable Performance Insights when creating or modifying an instance. Then go to the Performance Insights dashboard to start monitoring performance.

Performance Insights is included with Amazon DocumentDB instances and stores seven days of performance history in a rolling window at no additional cost. Amazon DocumentDB Performance Insights is currently available for r5, r6g, t3 and t4g instances in Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.
