Viewing Monitoring Metrics


Cloud Eye provided by the public cloud monitors RDS operating status. You can view the RDS monitoring metrics on the management console.

Monitored data takes some time for transmission and display. The RDS status displayed on the Cloud Eye console is the status of the last 5 to 10 minutes. If your RDS is newly created, wait for 5 to 10 minutes and then view the monitoring data.


  • RDS is running properly.

    RDS DB instances that are faulty or have been deleted cannot be displayed on the Cloud Eye console. After they are rebooted or restored, you can view their status.


If an RDS DB instance has been faulty for 24 hours, Cloud Eye considers that it does not exist and deletes it from the monitoring object list. You need to clear the alarm rule for the DB instance.

  • The relational database has been running properly for about 10 minutes.

    For a newly created DB instance, you need to wait for a while before viewing the monitoring metrics.


  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. Under Management & Deployment, click Cloud Eye.
  3. In the navigation pane on the left, choose Cloud Service Monitoring > Relational Database Service.
  4. On the displayed page, locate the target DB instance and click View Metric in the Operation column.
  5. In the RDS monitoring area, you can select a duration to view the monitoring data.

    You can view the RDS monitoring data of the last 1 hour, 3 hours, or 12 hours. To view the monitoring data of a longer time range, click to enlarge the graph.
