Amazon RDS Performance Insights now supports counter metrics on Amazon RDS for SQL Server. With counter metrics, you can customize the RDS Performance Insights dashboard to include up to 10 additional graphs that show a selection from dozens of operating system and database performance metrics. Counter metrics provide additional information that can be correlated with the database load chart to help identify performance issues and analyze performance.
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. RDS Performance Insights is included with supported Amazon Aurora clusters and Amazon RDS instances and stores seven days of performance history in a rolling window at no additional cost. If you need longer-term retention, you can choose to pay for up to two years of performance history retention.
