Flexible Retention for Provisioned Instances

Customers can specify performance history retention periods from one month to 24 months. Retention for one month or more is priced per vCPU per month for provisioned instances. The monthly price increases for longer retention periods, and may vary by region.

Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region

  • If you choose one month of retention, you pay ¥ 10.8587 per vCPU per month. For each additional month of retention (up to 24 months), ¥ 0.457 is added to the monthly price. For example, if you choose two months of retention, you pay (¥ 10.8587  + ¥ 0.457) per vCPU per month.
  • Pricing correlates to the number of vCPUs in the instances. For example, a db.r5.xlarge has 4 vCPUs. If you choose three months of retention, the price for Performance Insights retention would be (¥ 10.8587  + 2* ¥ 0.457) * 4 per month.
  • For each instance in an Aurora cluster, you can decide separately whether to increase the data retention.
  • Retention is metered by the hour, and the monthly price is prorated based on the number of hours the feature is in use.
  • Retention of performance data is limited to two years. Pricing does not depend on the actual amount of data stored.
  • If paid retention is turned off, performance data older than seven days is deleted. If retention windows are changed, data will be deleted accordingly. For example, if the retention period is changed from five months to four months, the fifth month of performance data would be deleted.

  • If you choose one month of retention, you pay ¥ 8.8567 per vCPU per month. For each additional month of retention (up to 24 months), ¥ 0.3727 is added to the monthly price. For example, if you choose two months of retention, you pay (¥ 8.8567  + ¥ 0.3727) per vCPU per month.
