AWS RDS Logging and Monitoring

Amazon's Relational Database Service (RDS) offers cloud-based relational databases that are easy to set up, operate, and scale. Its cost-efficiency and scalable capacity has enabled businesses to easily go from project conception to deployment.

However, monitoring logs and events from RDS is an important part of maintaining the reliability, availability, and performance of your AWS solutions. Collecting log data from different parts of your AWS environment enables you to debug multi-point failures if they occur.

AWS RDS logging and monitoring using Log360

Log360 addresses the need for security auditing with its AWS RDS monitoring capabilities. The AWS RDS monitoring tool collects individual logs and creates meaningful reports that give an overview of your AWS RDS metrics. This makes it easier to track changes happening to your AWS resources and to conduct security analysis. Using these AWS RDS monitoring metrics, IT admins can minimize both downtime and the mean time to resolve (MTTR).
