Amazon RDS (Relational Database Service) Performance Insights now allows you to export the metrics dashboard for your Amazon RDS instance to Amazon CloudWatch. You can export both the pre-configured and custom metrics dashboards. With this feature, it is now easier to view and set alarms on Amazon RDS Performance Insights metrics from Amazon CloudWatch, and integrate these metrics with other Amazon CloudWatch metrics on the same dashboard with just a few clicks in the console.

This feature allows you to export the Performance Insights metrics dashboard as a new dashboard or add it to an existing Amazon CloudWatch dashboard. When you choose to add the dashboard to an existing Amazon CloudWatch dashboard, you can create a header label so that these metrics appear in a separate section in the Amazon CloudWatch dashboard. You can also select an option in the metric widget menu in the Performance Insights dashboard and view the metrics data in the Amazon CloudWatch console.

Amazon RDS Performance Insights is a database performance tuning and monitoring feature of RDS that allows you to visually assess the load on your database and determine when and where to take action. With one click in the Amazon RDS Management Console, you can add a fully-managed performance monitoring solution to your Amazon RDS database.

Amazon RDS Performance Insights is available in both Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. To learn more about RDS Performance Insights and supported database engines, read the Amazon RDS User Guide.
