Amazon RDS Performance Insights, an advanced database performance monitoring feature that makes it easy to diagnose and solve performance challenges on Amazon RDS databases, is now generally available. It offers a free tier with 7 days of data retention, and a paid long-term data retention option.

Performance Insights allows non-experts to detect performance problems, with an easy-to-understand dashboard that visualizes database load. It currently supports Amazon Aurora with PostgreSQL compatibility, with additional database engines available in preview. For more information, read the blog, and visit the documentation.

You can get started by logging into the RDS Management Console, enabling Performance Insights for a new or existing database instance, and viewing the Performance Insights dashboard. You can also use the Web Service API and SDK to easily to integrate performance data into on-premises and third-party monitoring tools.
