Amazon RDS for Oracle now supports Enhanced Monitoring, which gives you near-real time access to a set of 56 system metrics and per process metrics for your instance.

We previously announced support for Enhanced Monitoring of your RDS instances for MySQL, MariaDB, Amazon Aurora, PostgreSQL, and SQL Server. Starting today, Enhanced Monitoring is also available for all RDS for Oracle instances. Enhanced Monitoring gives you deeper visibility into the health of your Amazon RDS instances in real time. It provides a comprehensive set of 56 new system metrics and aggregated process information for your instances, at granularity of up to 1 second. You can visualize the metrics on the RDS console, and also integrate them with Amazon CloudWatch and third-party applications.

For a complete list of available metrics and more information on how to use Amazon CloudWatch with this feature, see Enhanced Monitoring documentation. You can seamlessly integrate Enhanced Monitoring with third-party applications to monitor your RDS instances. See Amazon CloudWatch Documentation for more details on this integration.  

Enhanced Monitoring is available for all RDS for Oracle instances across all supported instance types except t1.micro and m1.small. Once you enable Enhanced Monitoring, you will incur standard CloudWatch Logs charges. For more details on pricing, go to CloudWatch Logs pricing.  

Enhanced Monitoring for Amazon RDS for Oracle is available today in the US East (Northern Virginia), US West (Northern California), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), Europe (Frankfurt), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Seoul), South America (Sao Paulo) and Asia Pacific (Tokyo) regions.
