Announcing Open Preview of Performance Insights

Posted on: Oct 24, 2017

Performance Insights is a new feature of Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) that helps you quickly detect database performance problems and take corrective action. Performance Insights has now been released in open preview.

Database developers and administrators often lack visibility into SQL query performance, which means applications go into production with poor database performance. Performance Insights makes it easy for non-experts to analyze performance with an easy-to-understand dashboard that visualizes database load.

The preview is available with 1 day data retention at no additional charge for users of Amazon Aurora with PostgreSQL compatibility. It requires no configuration or maintenance, and can be enabled with one click in the RDS Management Console.

Performance Insights is available in the US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), and EU (Ireland) Regions. Check out the Performance Insights launch video, and refer to the documentation for more information.
