Amazon RDS

Version: AWS Log Forwarder v1.0.10 and above.

Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) is a managed SQL database service provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS). Amazon RDS supports an array of database engines to store and organize data. It also helps with the relational database management tasks, such as data migration, backup, recovery and patching.

Netsurion monitors events from Amazon RDS by parsing the AWS CloudTrail logs and triggers from Amazon EventBridge. Dashboards and reports in Netsurion allow you to monitor overall actions performed that are related to the Amazon RDS service to keep you informed about its activities. It will trigger alerts whenever an action that is critical to the service is carried out.

For a new instance, integrate the AWS instance to Netsurion using the Netsurion integrator AWS Lambda function, which will in turn deliver logs to Netsurion from Amazon Web Services. For an already-integrated AWS instance, make sure to update to AWS Log Forwarder to v1.0.10 or above.

Once configured to deliver events to Netsurion Manager, the alerts, dashboards, and reports can be configured into Netsurion.

Some of the Data Source Integrations available in Netsurion are listed below.
