AWS RDS

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 relational database management tasks, such as data migration, backup, recovery and patching.

AWS RDS instance by HTTP

Overview

The template to monitor AWS RDS instance by HTTP via Zabbix that works without any external scripts.
Most of the metrics are collected in one go, thanks to Zabbix bulk data collection. NOTE This template uses the GetMetricData CloudWatch API calls to list and retrieve metrics. For more information, please refer to the (CloudWatch pricing)[https://aws.amazon.com/cloudwatch/pricing/] page.

Additional information about metrics and used API methods:

Requirements

Zabbix version: 6.4 and higher.

Tested versions

This template has been tested on:

  • AWS RDS instance by HTTP

Configuration

Zabbix should be configured according to the instructions in the Templates out of the box section.

Setup

The template get AWS RDS instance metrics and uses the script item to make HTTP requests to the CloudWatch API.

Before using the template, you need to create an IAM policy with the necessary permissions for the Zabbix role in your AWS account.

Add the following required permissions to your Zabbix IAM policy in order to collect Amazon RDS metrics.

{
    "Version":"2012-10-17",
    "Statement":[
        {
          "Action":[
                "cloudwatch:DescribeAlarms",
                "rds:DescribeEvents",
                "rds:DescribeDBInstances"
          ],
          "Effect":"Allow",
          "Resource":"*"
        }
    ]
  }

If you are using role-based authorization, set the appropriate permissions:

{
    "Version": "2012-10-17",
    "Statement": [
        {
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Action": "iam:PassRole",
            "Resource": "arn:aws:iam::<<--account-id-->>:role/<<--role_name-->>"
        },
        {
            "Sid": "VisualEditor1",
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Action": [
                "cloudwatch:DescribeAlarms",
                "rds:DescribeEvents",
                "rds:DescribeDBInstances",
                "ec2:AssociateIamInstanceProfile",
                "ec2:ReplaceIamInstanceProfileAssociation"
            ],
            "Resource": "*"
        }
    ]
}

Set macros "{$AWS.AUTH_TYPE}", "{$AWS.REGION}", "{$AWS.RDS.INSTANCE.ID}"

If you are using access key-based authorization, set the following macros "{$AWS.ACCESS.KEY.ID}", "{$AWS.SECRET.ACCESS.KEY}"

For more information about manage access keys, see official documentation

Also, see the Macros section for a list of macros used for LLD filters.

AWS RDS: Replication: Binlog lag

The amount of time that a binary log replica DB cluster running on Aurora MySQL-Compatible Edition lags behind the binary log replication source.

A lag means that the source is generating records faster than the replica can apply them.

A high value: The replica is lagging the replication source.

0 or a value close to 0: The replica process is active and current.

-1: Aurora can't determine the lag, which can happen during replica setup or when the replica is in an error state
