Metricbeat AWS RDS Module for Aurora Serverless

Hi,

Are there plans to scrape metrics for aurora serverless databases?

Best, Justin

Hi @justinw, sorry for the late response. Amazon Aurora sends monitoring metrics to Cloudwatch under AWS/RDS namespace based on https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonRDS/latest/AuroraUserGuide/Aurora.Monitoring.html

That means you can use aws module cloudwatch metricset in Metricbeat to scrape these metrics:

- module: aws
  period: 300s
  metricsets:
    - cloudwatch
  credential_profile_name: <your profile name>
  metrics:
    - namespace: AWS/RDS
      tags.resource_type_filter: rds
      statistic: ["Average"]

You can specify the statistic method you'd prefer and tags.resource_type_filter enables tag collection.

Please let me know if this helps. Thanks!
