Table: aws_rds_db_instance_metric_connections - Query AWS RDS DBInstance Metrics using SQL

The AWS RDS DBInstance Metrics is a feature of Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) that allows you to monitor the performance of your databases. It provides a variety of metrics that can help you understand your database's workload, throughput, and performance. These metrics can be queried using SQL, enabling you to analyze and optimize your database's performance.

Table Usage Guide

The aws_rds_db_instance_metric_connections table in Steampipe provides you with information about the number of database connections to each Amazon RDS DB instance. This table allows you, as a DevOps engineer, database administrator, or other technical professional, to query connection-specific details, including the time at which the number of connections was recorded, the maximum number of connections during the period, and the number of data points used for the statistical calculation. You can utilize this table to monitor and manage your database connections, analyze connection trends, and troubleshoot potential connection issues. The schema outlines the various attributes of the RDS DB instance connections, including the DB instance identifier, timestamp, sample count, average, minimum, and maximum number of connections.

The aws_rds_db_instance_metric_connections table provides you with metric statistics at 5 minute intervals for the most recent 5 days.

Examples

Basic info

Determine the areas in which AWS RDS database instances have varying connection metrics over time. This can help in understanding the database's performance and planning for scalability.

select
db_instance_identifier,
timestamp,
minimum,
maximum,
average,
sample_count
from
aws_rds_db_instance_metric_connections
order by
db_instance_identifier,
timestamp;
select
db_instance_identifier,
timestamp,
minimum,
maximum,
average,
sample_count
from
aws_rds_db_instance_metric_connections
order by
db_instance_identifier,
timestamp;

Intervals averaging over 100 connections

Determine the areas in which your AWS RDS database instances have an average of over 100 connections, allowing you to identify potential performance issues or heavy usage periods.

select
db_instance_identifier,
timestamp,
minimum,
maximum,
average,
sample_count
from
aws_rds_db_instance_metric_connections
where
average > 100
order by
db_instance_identifier,
timestamp;
select
db_instance_identifier,
timestamp,
minimum,
maximum,
average,
sample_count
from
aws_rds_db_instance_metric_connections
where
average > 100
order by
db_instance_identifier,
timestamp;

Export

This table is available as a standalone Exporter CLI. Steampipe exporters are stand-alone binaries that allow you to extract data using Steampipe plugins without a database.

You can download the tarball for your platform from the Releases page, but it is simplest to install them with the steampipe_export_installer.sh script:

/bin/sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://steampipe.io/install/export.sh)" -- aws

You can pass the configuration to the command with the --config argument:

steampipe_export_aws --config '<your_config>' aws_rds_db_instance_metric_connections
