Table: aws_rds_db_instance_metric_read_iops - Query AWS RDS DBInstanceMetricReadIops using SQL

The AWS RDS DB Instance Metric Read IOPS is a performance metric for Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) that measures the average number of disk I/O operations per second for read operations. This metric is useful to monitor the read activity on your RDS DB instance and can help you identify potential performance issues. It is part of the suite of CloudWatch metrics for RDS that provides detailed visibility into the health, performance, and availability of your RDS databases.

Table Usage Guide

The aws_rds_db_instance_metric_read_iops table in Steampipe provides you with information about the read IOPS metrics of AWS RDS DB instances. This table allows you, as a DevOps engineer or database administrator, to query and monitor the read IOPS metrics, which can be useful for performance tuning and capacity planning. The read IOPS refers to the number of read input/output operations per second. The schema outlines the various attributes of the DB instance metric, including the DB instance identifier, timestamp, minimum, maximum, sum, sample count, and unit of measurement for you.

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

Examples
