Amazon RDS Proxy

Overview

Amazon RDS Proxy is a fully managed, highly available database proxy for Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) that makes applications more scalable, more resilient to database failures, and more secure.

Enable this integration to see all your RDS Proxy metrics in Datadog.

Setup

Installation

If you haven’t already, set up the Amazon Web Services integration first. Enabling the Amazon RDS integration is also required.

Metric collection

  1. In the AWS integration tile, ensure that RDS Proxy is checked under metric collection.
  2. Install the Datadog - Amazon RDS Proxy integration.

Log collection

Enable logging

When creating an RDS Proxy, logging can be enabled in the advanced configuration. Follow instructions in Getting started with RDS Proxy to start sending your RDS Proxy logs to Cloudwatch.

Send logs to Datadog

  1. If you haven’t already, set up the Datadog log collection AWS Lambda function.
  2. Once the Lambda function is installed, manually add a trigger on the CloudWatch log group that contains your RDS Proxy logs. Select the corresponding CloudWatch log group, add a filter name (optional), and add the trigger.

Once done, go to the Datadog Log Explorer to analyze your logs.
